What is “living well” for you? What essential items should your house, neighborhood, and city have? Certainly, comfort, functionality, infrastructure and security are all items that make up your list of requirements. And these are some of the indispensable pillars of Real Parque, a planned neighborhood in north of the Island of Santa Catarina, focused on practicality and quality of life.
Florianópolis: the best Brazilian city to raise children
By talking about quality of life, Florianópolis stands out nationally for its high Human Development Index (HDI), educational levels and job creation – mainly in the growing area of technology, which has attracted more and more investors and skilled labor from Brazil and the world.
In a research for Exame magazine, Delta Economics & Finances pointed to the capital of Santa Catarina as the best city to raise children. The study took into account issues such as HDI; social rights; Life expectancy; income distribution; formal employment; access to electricity and sanitation; number of beds and emergency doctors; schooling etc.
All these positive points, combined with the natural beauty and the hospitality of the population make Florianópolis the city of many people’s dreams.
Urbanism: study to live well
Basically, urbanism is based on the following points: study, regulation, control and planning, which must take into account the time, geography, existing technologies and the particular and social needs of those who will inhabit a certain space. That is, urban planning is strictly related to the quality of life.
Jaime Lerner, former mayor of Curitiba, former governor of Paraná and a world reference in urban planning, argues that it is necessary to add in the urban space “a structure built with work, leisure, housing together.”
Following this logic, the ideal is that people’s daily activities develop within a radius of 10 km away from their homes, avoiding excess travel and increasing infrastructure investments.
Real Parque and the benefits of living in a planned neighborhood
Taking into account urban planning assumptions, planned neighborhoods emerged in the 1980s in the United States, taking into account principles of New Urbanism, which preach the mixed use of spaces, blending environment and infrastructure to provide comfort, convenience, and safety.
Real Urbanism started from this concept to create the Real Park, a neighborhood where modernity and green areas are integrated to guarantee a better quality of life for residents, who will have community gardens, club house (with ballroom, games room and deck with a long distance) ; playground; bicycle path; sand volleyball court; outdoor fitness space; space relax with pergolas; walking track of 2 km in the surroundings; and security guards and monitored. All these structures in an environment with beautiful landscaping, urbanized public areas and a natural security barrier formed by 22,000 square meters of green area of permanent preservation around the neighborhood, located near the famous beaches of Ingleses and Jurerê Internacional, with the convenience of living close to schools, supermarkets, clinics and hospitals, malls and ample commerce and the Center.
