New Perspective Senior Living unveiled its West Fargo location, the company's first in North Dakota, with a ribbon-cutting event and reception with city mayor Rich Mattern on Thursday, Aug. 24.

"We see the senior population as an under-served market in Fargo-Moorhead," New Perspective Senior Living President and CFO Ryan Novaczyk said in a press release. "We have something unique to offer this group, and we are excited to bring our programs, services and amenity-rich building to this community."

The 130,000 square-foot development at 645 33rd Ave East has 131 apartments with a mix of 83 independent and assisted living options. The Betty's Harbor memory care neighborhood, which opened in the spring, can support up to 48 residents. New Perspective could employ about 100 team members when fully staffed.

The development has amenities for comfort, convenience and entertainment of residents and guests. The West Fargo location has a full-time chef with a restaurant-style main dining room, a café serving breakfast and lunch and The Rough Rider pub with beer and wine with bi-weekly happy hours.

The development also has a dance hall, a fitness center designed for seniors, a large heated pool for water aerobics and swim classes, a beauty salon and a community room for entertainment, events and gatherings.

"New Perspective Senior Living is about helping seniors live and age successfully," New Perspective partner and chief operating officer Chris Hyatt said in a press release. "To see a 90-year-old resident who is vibrant and active and truly enjoying life is incredibly inspiring — and we help countless residents do exactly that."
