The Northland Wellness Community project will redevelop a 150-acre mall site. An initial conceptual plan solidified the four-way P3 relationship between Providence Park Hospital, Michigan State University, Lawrence Technical University, and Oakland Community College and has truly grown into a fusion building. The 542,500 sq. ft. project, delivered in three phases, carefully considers the program mix, embedding healthcare within the heart of this campus to ensure a focus on wellness. By addressing physical health, social health, economic health, and environmental health, the Wellness Community revitalizes the neighborhood and places a much-needed emphasis on training and workforce development for the surrounding community.
Incorporating the elements of Healthy Urbanism™ will help ensure the community has key components to support well-being within close proximity. The program mix includes an Ambulatory Care Centers of Excellence, a Center for Well-Being, food hall/event center, 150- key hotel, 4-story Education Center, senior housing, student housing, and a rehabilitation center all embedded within the walkable community designed to provide an environment for its occupants to thrive.
Wellogy was instrumental in bringing the P3 partners together and delivering funding. The four residents, as noted above as well as the City of Southfield and the master developer, Pacific Medical Buildings, will provide the financial backing.
