That is our mission. We hire only dedicated employees who give full attention to residents and their families. In 2008, a major expansion will open 89 new, larger apartments. Also opening is an aquatic center, bistro grill, larger & new amenities areas, and a complete refurbishment of the original campus. Located in south Charlotte, Southminster is a small, 25-acre, lovely community, close to numerous shopping and medical support advantages.
