DJM Plans Mixed-Use Development at Bella Terra Shopping Center in Huntington Beach


The new plans for Bella Terra Shopping Center in Huntington Beach, Calif., includes five stories of residential space above 25,000 square feet of retail space.

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF. — DJM has submitted plans to Huntington Beach’s Planning Commission for a mixed-use residential development at the Bella Terra shopping center in Huntington Beach.

Planned on the current Burlington Coat Factory site, the new development would include demolishing the 210,000-square-foot structure and an additional surrounding 30,000 square feet of retail space.

DJM plans to replace the demolished structures with a low-rise building boasting 25,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space beneath five stories of residential space, with 15 percent of the 300 units designated as affordable housing.

The project will include structured parking for residents that supplements Bella Terra’s existing parking structure.

Since acquiring Bella Terra, formerly the Huntington Beach Mall, in 2005, DJM has transformed the shopping center into a community hub by curating a mix of retail, dining and entertainment spaces. In 2019, DJM reimagined the property’s center courtyard to include a stage, grassy lawn and beer and wine garden in an open-air setting.
