MATTHEWS – Windsor Run celebrated its first anniversary May 15, but growth is on the horizon.
Beech Hollow, a new independent living building, will open in June to meet demand. It will feature 101 new residences in a variety of floor plans. Construction on the continuing care neighborhood will begin this year.
“Our pioneer residents and employees laid the foundation for Windsor Run to blossom into a caring, mission-oriented community serving seniors in the Charlotte area,” said George Comfort, executive director of the retirement community developed and managed by Erickson Living. “In the years to come, we will continue to welcome new residents and staff members, but we will always owe these pioneers our gratitude.”
The one-year celebration included a morning walk around the campus, a cook-out with entertainment by Jim Terrell and a mid-afternoon cake-cutting. The culinary team prepared menus with favorites, such as pulled barbecue and grilled chicken for lunch and prime rib and stuffed chicken breasts for dinner. Residents danced that evening to entertainer Jim Ruth.
The independent living neighborhood provides a vibrant lifestyle to residents with amenities, activities and services, complemented with integrated healthcare and wellness. The 60-acre property includes an all-season aquatics and fitness center, two restaurants, Tavern 1879, a medical center and movie theater.
“Last May, we made the commitment to serve our residents in a way that brings life to all who pass through our doors, one experience at a time,” Comfort said. “Since then, it has been rewarding to form new relationships, inspire each other and create the lifestyle for residents that we envisioned together. I am proud of everyone who has made Windsor Run a great place to live and work in our inaugural year.”
