Terra Vista, a 1,320-acre master-planned, mixed-use community in Rancho Cucamonga that celebrated its first birthday July 4, has become home to nearly 300 families, according to the developer, Lewis Homes of Upland.
Two market chains have committed themselves to build in the $1-billion community: Hughes Markets, a 35,000-square-foot store, and Long's Drug Store, 23,000 square feet. A third anchor tenant is expected, 120,000 square feet have been earmarked for retail outlets and sites have been reserved for restaurants and financial institutions.
National Medical Enterprises will begin construction late in 1986 on a 133-bed, 120,000-square-foot full-service acute care hospital on 50 acres and Lewis Homes will build a medical center, timed to open just before the hospital, to include doctors' suites and other medically related service facilities.
When completed, according to Richard Lewis, president of the family-owned building firm, Terra Vista will have as residents about 9,200 families in various forms of housing. There are also plans for 47 acres of parks, trails and greenbelts, a 99-acre city park and schools in addition to the commercial and medical facilities.
