Through the principals of new urbanism, Bella Terra (formerly Village Center at Harbor Point) creates a large- scale development with diverse building types for multiple user groups. Residential and commercial buildings are brought together through careful planning and an emphasis on pedestrian access. A rich mix of businesses including medical-dental, accounting, mortgage and financial is blended with retail shops, restaurants, and a coffee/juice bar to create a vital community center that promotes interaction among residences. A variety of housing options are also provided, they include flats, town homes, and live/ work units. A mix of traffic calming schemes including parallel parking, street trees, and raised- textured paving help create a pedestrian friendly environment.
