Welcome to South Hills Retirement Residence

offering seniors affordable and comfortable living in a GREEN Building.


What is a GREEN Building?

A Green building is friendly to the environment and healthy for the occupants. There is a high degree of care put into the selection of materials and mechanical systems. The building operates so that there is always fresh air even in the winter months introduced into the building. In addition materials are selected to be low VOC. VOC stands for volatile organic compounds. Materials like carpeting, resilient flooring, glue, foam furniture, paints and other finishes, can contain VOC's that off-gas, polluting the air inside buildings. South Hills has a very low level of VOC's making it easier for seniors to breathe.


Each apartment includes a complete kitchen, and full bath plus dining/living room, and one or two bedrooms. The building was designed with the needs of seniors in mind. It has extra-wide doors, handy cabinet heights, convenience bars in the bath areas, emergency pull-cords in each bedroom and bath, yet its design and interiors are fashioned with the comforts of home.
