Earlier in 2016, Carolina Arbors officially grand opened Piedmont Hall, a 37,000-square-foot amenity center, which was ultimately the deciding factor in the community earning top honors. Some of Piedmont Hall's offerings include an indoor pool and spa, billiards, state-of-the-art recreation and fitness center, varsity rooms, aerobic exercise rooms, ceramics room, ballroom and more. The amenity center offers residents the flexibility of staging indoor and outdoor social events simultaneously while giving the residents a way to expand their social circle.
