Carolina Village is a non-profit retirement community with continuing care working toward fulfilling a long range masterplan for its facilities. This project is part of Carolina Village’s “Mainstreet” concept, which strives to provide an active, social environment for the residents by applying the design principles of a small town center. The project includes the renovation of an existing building of approximately 21,000 SF, along with the addition of approximately 3,000 SF. The “Mainstreet” includes: a Bistro/Sports Bar with Lounge, Wellness and Exercise rooms, two Classrooms, a Post Office, Beauty/Barber Shop and a Pharmacy/Market. The addition also has space allocated for a future Health Clinic. The addition houses an 800 SF public activity pool and a 200 SF therapy spa.
The Mainstreet concept is intended to respond to a new wave of clientele, retiring baby-boomers who demand a different kind of lifestyle than retirement communities traditionally provide.
