Village Center Phase I (Bella-Terra at Harbour Pointe) is based on the concept for developing a cohesive community following the principles of new urbanism. The design includes a diversity of building types and uses, street design that emphasizes the pedestrian, and a focus on the village center to support community activity.
Varieties of housing types are provided in the plan, including flats, townhomes, and live/work units. The live/work units are focused on the street fronts where parallel parking, street trees, and raised-textured paving slow traffic and create a pedestrian friendly environment.
A rich mix of businesses including medical-dental, accounting, mortgage, financial and personal services is blended with shops, restaurants, and a coffee/juice bar to create a vital community center. This mix of uses with the residential and live-work apartments encourages pedestrian activity and interaction among residences
