The Gardens on Carolina is designed for the special needs of elderly persons and includes highly efficient floor plans, energy conscious design solutions and quality site amenities. The building is organized with adjoining parking for the residents' convenience, safety and accessibility. All apartments open onto interior corridors providing the highest degree of security as well as accessibility via elevator and stairs. The three-story concept allows for the design of shortened corridors on each floor to reduce the walking distance.
