Freehold retirement homes that support safe independent living.

Northlit was founded in 2015 in Taupō by business entrepreneur and passionate property developer Matthew Laity. While being involved in trying to find a safe, desirable retirement home for his much loved grandparents, he quickly recognised a significant lack in the market. Following the project management of a custom build for his grandparents, and becoming aware of the imminent retiring baby-boomer generation Northlit was birthed. A company committed to designing and building high quality, freehold lifestyle retirement homes that support safe independent living.
