“HearthSide was designed and built exclusively for seniors,” Barr said. “At every stage of development, careful consideration was given to our residents’ security, comfort, convenience and enjoyment. In addition to the benefits presented by an exceptional location and a walkable, master-planned community, the residents of HearthSide Towne Lake enjoy a lifestyle full of social, recreational and educational opportunities. These seniors have the freedom to explore friendships and hobbies with others who share their same interests,” he said.

“We are excited to welcome and celebrate HearthSide Towne Lake’s new residents,” said Dave Dixon, managing partner with NorSouth. “Demographic research clearly shows a strong need for affordable homes for independent seniors, which will only increase in the future. Many seniors prefer to live near their children and grandchildren, which is why we are building in established residential neighborhoods. Because people are now living many years beyond retirement, a number of seniors will find themselves in the ‘moderate income’ category, which is the population we serve with our apartment communities.”
