Matthews Glen is pleased to announce its award for Best Over 55 Community, an honorable recognition by Matthews, North Carolina residents. Readers of Matthews-Mint Hill Weekly voted for their favorite businesses in its annual Best of the Weekly Readers Choice Awards.

"We are thrilled to have been voted by the residents of Matthews and neighboring towns the 'Best Over 55 Community' in our area," said Patrick Picciocchi, Executive Director of Matthews Glen. "The residents and team at Matthews Glen strive to fulfill our company mission of Loving-Kindness, and this honor is an example of how our mission is being noticed."  

Picciocchi accepted the award on behalf of Matthews Glen at a June 24 reception at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Charlotte. The theme of the party was the Roaring Twenties since that era followed a global pandemic in 1919. 

Matthews Glen (formerly Plantation Estates) combines the most desirable aspects of North Carolina retirement living with the convenience of a gated suburban campus. "Matthews is a beautiful community to be a part of, and we are fortunate to be within walking distance of the historic downtown." Picciocchi added.

The community is also expanding with the addition of new apartment homes and villas. With more space comes additional amenities, including park-like green spaces and lighted walking paths. Learn more about Matthews Glen or its new expansion today.
