At NORR, our residential portfolio spans decades and project types. We design multi-family buildings and spaces that help to establish smart cities and resilient neighborhoods, with a focus on walkable communities, certified healthy buildings and carbon reduction strategies. Optimizing square footage and managing space standards is at the core of our designs. Our dedicated team leverages a knowledge base of program metrics that covers the spectrum of integrated developments (transit-oriented and community-focused), low-, mid- and high-rise apartments, adaptive reuse, townhomes, attainable housing and senior living.
Designs for Marketability
Our design team applies market strategy, demographic research and competitive analysis to develop a holistic view of the target market. We assess the lifestyle desires of the end-user and the business goals of the client to create communities that will attract and retain residents for years to come. We respond to changing marketplace needs with designs that feature multiple unit layouts, comprehensive amenity spaces, mixed-use elements and interconnections to the community that commands top rental rates. With evolving workplace strategies, we are realizing opportunities to develop coworking amenity spaces in residential projects, as well as converting commercial spaces to viable livable uses.
Designs For Life
We view senior living projects as a natural extension of our Residential, Hospitality and Health Sciences portfolios – and have been able to use this experience to deliver unique, high-quality facilities. We design residences for all levels of care, from independent living communities to memory care facilities, working to improve the quality of life for residents on behalf of both public and private clients.
