The Shops at Norterra are growing right along with its vibrant surrounding community. Since YAM Properties took over in late 2019, several new tenants have opened or signed on to join the center. YAM Properties is the Scottsdale-based real estate investment and development group of businessman Bob Parsons. Since it launched in 2012, the company has acquired more than 2.5 million square feet of retail and office space, with The Shops at Norterra being one of the company’s most recent acquisitions.
Recently, the family behind the popular, locally owned State 48 restaurants and breweries launched two new concepts in the open-air lifestyle and shopping center – Osteria Mia and State 48 Rock House.
Osteria Mia is a modern Italian-inspired restaurant and wine bar. Operating under the motto of “old country meets new school Italian,” the menu features classic dishes, wood-fired pizza, small plates and build-your-own charcuterie and bruschetta boards. Osteria Mia stocks an extensive wine list and craft beer, including selections from State 48 and other local breweries.
Speaking of State 48, Rock House at Norterra is the brand’s fifth location. Patrons can enjoy the State 48 beer and scratch-made menu the company is known for, but this brewpub will not produce beer onsite and instead focus on entertainment. The centerpieces include a large stage for live performances and a 4,000-square-foot covered patio. The outdoor area will house family-friendly games and an outdoor bar.
Luv 2 Play will be opening soon, adding a fantastic, kid-centric element to The Shops at Norterra. The indoor playground is designed for children up to 12 years old and includes separate baby and toddler rooms, video games and a LEGO build area. Parents can enjoy the full-service café and free Wi-Fi.
Other businesses that have recently opened include Sephora, Crumbl Cookies and American Outdoor Living. In total, the 350,000-square-foot center features more than 50 diverse destinations for shopping, dining, services, and entertainment.
