1) What is your role in managing Carlton Hollow Apartments?

I am the Director of Marketing and Business Development for Sunrise Management & Consulting. We proudly manage Carlton Hollow Apartments, and I've been working on the planning of branding and amenity offerings of this community for the past couple of years now. We welcomed our first residents in May 2018, so it's been very exciting to see it come to life.

2) Would you be able to provide some background info about how the apartment community got started?

Carlton Hollow Apartments is a development partnership between the Amedore Group and Sunrise Management & Consulting. After our companies' successful partnership on Van Allen Apartments in North Greenbush, we decided to partner again for Carlton Hollow Apartments.

3) Was the Ballston Spa location chosen for its proximity to Saratoga Springs and everything it has to offer?

Carlton Hollow’s location does allow you to take advantage of everything the area has to offer. It's conveniently located near Milton's town center, and it's just a few minutes away from Saratoga Spa State Park and other nearby cultural attractions, including Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga Casino Hotel, the National Museum of Dance...

4) Who would you say is your ideal resident? Someone who leads an active lifestyle?

So Carlton Hollow Apartments appeals to those 55 and older who want to couple a beautiful maintenance-free apartment with amenities that let them enjoy fun and fitness year round. To stay active, residents will be able to enjoy the indoor pool, two-story pickleball court, fitness center and sauna, and strolls around the community and surrounding residential neighborhood.

We have had residents move in from communities that weren't targeted to those 55 and over who have described the friendships and camaraderie they were able to develop playing cards together in the community room and enjoying community activities like a Halloween party.

5) What kinds of apartments are offered at the community?

We have three floor plans, or apartment types. The Springs is the one bedroom, one bathroom floor plan type, The Putnam is the two bedroom, one bathroom floor plan type, and The Ballston has two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The floor plan names were taken from landmarks in the surrounding community: The Springs’ coming from Saratoga Springs, The Ballston from Ballston Spa, and The Putnam from the Gideon Putnam, named after the man who founded the hotel and was known as Saratoga's founding father.

Each of our apartments can accommodate two people per bedroom. So with our two bedroom floor plan, you can have up to four people.

7) For a senior looking to downsize, what amenities or furnishings does each room offer?

Residents will appreciate the nine foot ceilings, washer and dryer, kitchen pantry, central air and heat, and the one and two bedroom open floor plan. Each apartment features a gourmet kitchen that includes a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops. Adjoining each apartment's living room is a private balcony to enjoy the outdoors while at home.
