VIDA: October 2023 Community Update

VIDA Phase 3

Development progress continues at an impressive pace for the VIDA community. Phase 3, which will feature a range of homes and townhomes, is located just north of  VIDA’s Town center and the University Health Campus. We anticipate construction of homes to commence in Phase 3 next Spring.

University Health Hospital Site Work Underway

This month marks a significant milestone in the development of VIDA, as University Health has begun site work in preparation to construct the first three buildings on the University Health campus at VIDA; the hospital, the first medical office building, and the Department of Public Health building. Watch for updates on progress.

Art at VIDA: Call for Artists

In August, VIDA issued our inaugural call for artists, inviting creative minds to submit their concepts for the first sculpture to grace VIDA, to be prominently displayed on Mitra Way, just past the Lennar model home. Final concept selection will take place later this year, and we will soon unveil the selected artist.

Are you an artist or know an artist that would like to enhance our vibrant community? Applications are open until October 15. For more details visit the application portal.

Park Naming Contest

As temperatures cool towards the end of this month, we are thrilled to announce the commencement of the construction of parks and trails in Phase 2. We invite you to take part in the naming of these exciting new outdoor spaces. Please submit your park name recommendations along with the reasons for your choice via VIDA’s social channels, accessible at @LiveVida.
