Erickson, to focus on identifying sites for what he called an aggressive expansion of the 10-year-old company, which opened its prototype on the grounds of a former seminary in Catonsville in 1983. Charlestown, with 2,400 residents, is the largest housing development for middle-income senior citizens in the country, according to the company.
