Windsor Run Launches Construction of Continuing Care Neighborhood with Groundbreaking Ceremony

Matthews, North Carolina—Windsor Run retirement community, developed and managed by Erickson Living, launched the construction of its continuing care neighborhood during a groundbreaking ceremony held on October 11.

A multi-phase project, the first phase of the building will offer residents assisted living, memory care and long-term care services.  The name of the continuing care neighborhood is Piedmont Overlook, and the community expects to welcome residents to the new building in the first half of 2021.

“The beginning of construction is a major step in fulfilling a commitment to being a full-service continuing care retirement community, providing our residents and local seniors with quality and compassionate care right here on campus should they need it,” stated George Comfort, Executive Director.  “While the building and amenities will be state-of-the-art and welcoming, the true foundation of this neighborhood will always be the people who will live and work in it.  Piedmont Overlook will be a special place in which every stage of life is celebrated as rich and rewarding.”

Lantz-Boggio Architects is serving as the project architect, and Kaufman Lynn Construction will be the general contractor for Piedmont Overlook.

When completed, the 27,000 square feet, 1-story neighborhood will feature amenity spaces such as a restaurant, family kitchen, salon, living rooms and an enclosed courtyard as well as a variety of modern studio and one-bedroom apartment homes.

“Piedmont Overlook was strategically designed with the resident in mind.  Our person-centered approach to care, paired with our thoughtful neighborhood layout, allows residents the flexibility and freedom to choose the services they need in the space that is most desirable to them,” said Gregg Colon, Senior Vice President of Health Services for Erickson Living.

It has been an exciting year for Windsor Run as the community celebrated its first anniversary in May and opened a new independent living building with 101 stylish residences in the spring called Beech Hollow.
