Community targets 70+

Indian Land is getting another active-adult community, to be located just south of Sun City Carolina Lakes and targeting residents in their 70s.
The 230-unit development on U.S. 521 doesn’t have a name yet, but developers CitiSculpt and Starling plan to make it an entirely rental community, with independent-living apartments and cottages.
“It’s meant to be complimentary to Sun City, rather than competing,” CitiSculpt CEO Charles McAlpine said. “It would be for people that want to move out of Sun City, or possibly that are moving parents closer to them, for instance…. slightly older active-adults.”
Slightly older means about 15 years older than Sun City’s starting age of 55, according to McAlpine. This new development will have services tailored to benefit adults starting in their 70s, including a three-story assisted living and memory-care facility.
Construction will begin near the end of this year and should be complete for move-in around the middle of 2018, McAlpine said.
CitiSculpt, which has helped create communities like Berkshire Dilworth and West Morehead Lofts in Charlotte, is partnering with Starling, a residential-management company that has developed senior-living communities across the Southeast, on this new development.
When the community is completed, Starling will manage it.
“Starling continues to raise the bar for new-generation communities by incorporating the best programs and amenities available to residents,” McAlpine said. “It will be specifically designed for the site and try to match the fit and character of the area surrounding it.”
