There is lots of new development happening in and near the Melbourne real estate market. Local area market watchers suggest this recent upswing in starting or completing new home developments is related to possible new construction impact fees which have been rumored to increase at the start of the new year to $4,000. Whatever the reason, it is great news for Melbourne real estate advisors who now have many more options for interested home buyers to choose from along with a wider variety of price points. Get specifics on which home developers are expanding and which neighborhood subdivisions are getting ready for a grand opening.

Hemingway's Tavern is a fun watering hole located next to the Premier Oaks Theater in Melbourne. As the name implies, Hemingway's Tavern is a nod to one of Key West's most famous residents Ernest Hemingway. The decor at Hemingway's Tavern is pure Key West through and through, all the way down to the live feed of the Southernmost Point from Key West on the flat screen TV's. The menu is varied and includes everything from burgers to seared Ahi tuna, pulled pork sandwiches, conch fritters, yard bird (chicken), crab cakes and fish prepared a variety of ways. Cocktails include margaritas and various rum drinks.I tried the Key West Bowl at Hemingway's Tavern which was a bowl of rice and (black) beans with pulled pork. There was a tasty chimichurri sauce on top with fried plantains (I asked fo...

In 2015 the Brevard Zoo welcomed 2  zebras to the zoo named Iggy and Zonka. These two animals share their enclosure with three white rhinos. Now the Brevard Zoo is welcoming Lauren from Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. Lauren is, a 2 year old female Grevy's zebra that was orphaned at the tender age of 3 weeks of age. Here are some fun facts about Zebra:There are typically 3 different types of zebras that you will see in zoos... The mountain zebra the plain zebra the Grevy's zebra The Grevy's zebra is the most endangered of the 3 species with only 750 individuals left in the wild Zebra are very social animals and live within a strict heirarchy Zebra are very aggressive (so poor little Lauren may get hazed for a while) Zebra can eat 45 - 50 pounds of hay each day Zebra also enjoy lettuce, carrots...

We seem to have a pizza joint on every block here along the Space Coast. Part of the reason may be that many of our job relocations have come from the Northeast, and in particular the New York metro area. New York Pizza & Pasta, located at 6450 N Wickham Rd in Suntree is one the best choices in the Suntree/Viera area for NY Style pies.They sell by the slice or the pie and are open 7 days a week.The best deals are the Monday and Tuesday large pizza special (either carry out or dine in) for $7.99 and the lunch specials which all come with a drink and large salad (huge, really) for $7.49. The choices for the lunch special are:1. Homemade Lasagna2. Baked Penne Pasta3. Spaghetti & Meatball4. Meatball Parmigiana Sub5. Full Italian Combo Sub (hot or cold)(Made with ham, pepperoni, salami & pro...

The French company, Thales Group (pronounced "tal is" group), announced this week that they will be expanding their operations on the Space Coast instead of a California location which was also under consideration. This will bring in 327 new jobs to the Melbourne location with an average salary of over $64,000 per year. These positions will be in addition to the 240 positions that Thales Group currently has in place now. Thales Group will move to the former DRS Tactical location at 1110 W Hibiscus Ave near the Melbourne International Airport. This addition is expected to add more than $20 million in development dollars for the Melbourne area. In return, Thales Group will receive a total of $1.38 million in tax incentives spread out over 10 years. This announcement is great news to the h...

PC Keats is one of our newer restaurants in Historic Downtown Melbourne, FL. The restaurant includes a beautiful outdoor patio that faces the bustling downtown streets, a large bar area and plenty of indoor tables and seating. PC Keats opens seven days at 11am to 10pm, and Friday and Saturday night they open until 2am.They offer lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, catering, cocktails, a full bar and lots of large screen TV's throughout (to watch during a big game)!First impression is that PC Keats is trying to be everything to everyone. Is this a large sit down restaurant, a sports bar, a brunch place, a night club...The food is quite good (I have tried both brunch and dinner). The menu is very large with  a variety of food types... From pancakes to pizza, shrimp and grits to curry chicken. ...

Northrop Grumman has been awarded the coveted Project Magellan contract over competitors Boeing and Lockheed Martin. This contract will bring 1900 high tech jobs paying $100,000+ to the Space Coast by designing and manufacturing a new highly classified long range B-2 stealth bomber for the United States Air Force. This contract is significant economically to the Melbourne area not only for the  jobs that it will create here, but also because of the $500 million facility that will need to be build to house the project. This contract is one of the largest economic contracts ever for Central Florida.Because of Project Magellan, the Northrup Grumman campus will grow to 157 acres with 2 - 3 story office buildings called "The Nest" totaling almost 500,000 square feet scheduled for constructio...

 OK...so I must admit up front...I really like the Mansion in Melbourne, FL. They are a little bit different ...and they know it!This place sort of seems like a bunch of bars, restaurants, deli, and wine store all wrapped together...and it works! The Mansion offers two distinct bars, one on the first floor is sort of a quiet pub that is a good place to meet a client or just chat. The upstairs bar is a great place to view the river, meet on a first date or just hang out with friends after work. Although the menu is the same, the upstairs and downstairs restaurant seating areas have a very different feel (I love going upstairs  after the sun goes down to enjoy our amazing Space Coast weather).The menu itself is a mix of nice entrees (the salmon and pork chops get good reviews), burgers, s...
