Project DescriptionNorterre is the first of its kind multigenerational health, wellness and residential neighborhood currently under construction in Liberty, Missouri. The master-planned community will serve Northland residents for all stages of life, including young families, active adults and seniors. It will change the way we live, play and heal.
Norterre is being built on 17-acres adjacent to Liberty Hospital with large greenspaces for cross-generational and cultural activities. The first phase of Norterre will debut with a 50,000-square-foot healthy living center, 60 assisted living residences with 20 dedicated assisted living memory support, 20 long-term care residences and 40 short-term stay suites for individuals of all ages going through rehabilitation, as well as retail, childcare, and healthy dining. Expected to open in the summer of 2017, Norterre will feature housing that follows the Household Model which was developed and introduced to the senior living sector by Action Pact, led by Steve Shields and LaVrene Norton. Construction of the second phase is planned to immediately follow with independent living and non-age-specific housing options.
The 50,000-square-foot healthy living complex will be the integral center for Norterre. Young adults, parents and grandparents can come together for fitness, yoga and spin classes, personalized training, nutritional and cooking demonstrations for healthy choices, bariatric consultations, and other medically-prescribed rehabilitation and physical therapies. Any adult can join as a member, doctors can also prescribe therapy or wellness programs, and companies will team up with Norterre to create medically integrated wellness intitiatives. Members will learn about wellness, spiritual well-being, therapeutic remedies, and reach personal milestones in a supportive environment. The peaceful surroundings of Norterre will be host to multicultural community events, healthy living activities, and performing arts, open to all Northland residents.
Norterre is the result of a partnership between Action Pact, Liberty Hospital, and Healthy Living Centers of America. For more information about Norterre, the public can visit www.norterre.org or call 816-550-8544.
