Arden 55+ at Huntersville: Building Your Best Life

Frank Lloyd Wright said, “The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.” And, while this can most certainly be true, there is one caveat: “Futures don’t make themselves; you have to create them.” (Author Unknown). Healthy aging can be a beautiful time of continued growth in all aspects of life – physically, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually and socially. Studies demonstrate that lifestyle choices impact successful aging, and it is the mission of Arden at Huntersville to provide a space where 55 and better active adults can grow and flourish in a vibrant and welcoming community. The name “Arden” comes from the Latin phrase, “Great Forest” and, like a forest with its tremendous variety of flora and fauna, Arden at Huntersville prides itself on being inclusive and accessible with intentional “forest nods” to the brand at every turn. For example, the naming of amenity spaces like the “Green Room” (where residents come together to enjoy gatherings, celebration, events, clubs and each other’s company) symbolize new beginnings and growth. It’s Arden’s mission to let the residents shine. When doing so, our communities come to life. Our Green Room is named and dedicated to our residents because they are the stars of the show. Arden at Huntersville is dedicated to empowering residents’ lives through possibility – if they can dream it, Arden 55+ can make it happen. Empty-nesters, retirees and pre-retirees who are ready to start an exciting new chapter in life will find themselves surrounded by neighbors who share many of the same interests, activities and experiences…paving the way for wonderful friendships to blossom.

Starting fresh and embarking on new beginnings can be liberating regardless of where you are in life – with the right mindset and determination, anything is possible!”

Planned 55+ communities continue to grow in popularity, and industry experts anticipate this trend will persist as many of the nation’s 73 million baby boomers will be “on the move” over the next decade as they downsize, change geographic location, relocate to an active adult community, etc. The 2020 US Census Bureau revealed that older adults are projected to outnumber children under age 18 for the first time in US history by 2034. Think about that for a moment! By 2050, nearly one-quarter of Americans will be 55 or older. The data clearly shows that one of the top reasons older adults are making the move to a 55+ active community is their desire for a streamlined, maintenance-free lifestyle and a sense of belonging that comes from living amongst others at the same life stage. Active seniors want a robust social life, and they enjoy having calendars full of enjoyable and exciting opportunities to experience in a safe and peaceful environment. Arden 55+ is committed to ensuring residents are involved and active while having fun! “Living your best life yet” is more than a slogan at Arden 55+ – it is at the core of their holistic approach to building an inclusive, innovative, active adult rental community that fosters a sense of community. With more than 8,000 square feet of amenity spaces, there is something for everyone!

Arden 55+ boasts 129 single level apartment homes with a variety of one- and two-bedroom floor plans to choose from – all with an open concept and intentionally designed interiors. When you step across the threshold, it is immediately obvious that the kitchen is ideally situated. In this highly digital era, studies have shown that people crave a break from screen time in exchange for present-moment awareness and more face-to-face time with others. The “new living room” provides a space to step away from electronic media and, according to the experts, time spent in the kitchen is good for overall physical, mental and emotional health. And, because food and conversation go together, the revival of the kitchen as the heart of the home is more than just a nostalgic nod to the past – it is a research-backed “must.” The large adjacent living area ensures there is plenty of room for gathering with family and friends for game night, special occasions, dinner parties, etc. Arden 55+ sought suggestions from a focus group to ascertain the most important community amenities to include and, likewise, valuable input was collected regarding home interior amenities as well.

  • Kitchen islands*
  • Stainless steel appliances
