DTJ has been providing ongoing design services for over a decade at Centerra, a 3,000 acre mixed-use community. The overall master plan creates an integrated pattern of land uses and development, by providing strong pedestrian connections, a range of housing opportunities within close proximity to jobs, shopping, entertainment, and social gathering places. Building upon existing development, Centerra is distinguished by six districts with six distinctive personalities. The mix of land uses and special character of each district take into consideration the site’s unique landscape or urban characteristics. The districts are compact, walkable environments. An open space and trails network emanates from all district centers and connects throughout the community and its amenities, tying the community together. A key feature of the parks and opens space system is a major commitment to enhance Loveland’s heritage through the incorporation of sculpture in the public realm.
