Even though Port St. Lucie is a young city, incorporated in 1961, it has commanded attention as one of Florida's fastest growing, and most promising cities. More than 150,000 residents make up Port St. Lucie. With its beaches, navigable waterways, and 113 square miles less than 50% build-out, the possibilities are endless. What began as a predominantly residential "bedroom community" is now undergoing a transition, becoming a dynamic and diverse city. With its low density and affordable land, Port St. Lucie is appealing to business owners looking to move to a centrally located area. The city is undertaking aggressive redevelopment efforts to improve the U.S. # 1 corridor with the intention of creating a new downtown business area for the community. Over the next several years a massive roadway improvement program will be implemented, including the construction of the Crosstown Parkway, making traveling the city easier and faster. The Professional Golf Association (PGA) also has a home in Port St. Lucie at PGA Village and has built a state of the art PGA Learning center, holding its winter tournaments here every year at one of its signature courses.
