Hot on the heels of an opening in Tampa, Florida, the Roost aparthotel brand is heading to neighbouring US state South Carolina with a development scheduled to launch in early 2024.
Roost Charleston is intended to be a design-forward 50-unit site, bridging the boutique hotel experience with apartment-style living.
Extended stay first
Developer Capital Square and real estate manager Method Co are driving the $61 million project forward, with the latter operating the property’s rooftop lounge, drawing on its experience in food and beverage operations to create a space that serves both as an amenity to guests and locals.
The property will be the city’s first high-design, extended-stay hotel concept. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, the aparthotel will feature 52,700 sq ft of space comprising a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment hotel units, a rooftop lounge, and 27,700 sq ft of rentable space.
Construction is now underway, with a recent groundbreaking ceremony attended by Capital Square executives Louis Rogers, founder and CEO, and Whitson Huffman, chief strategy and investment officer; Method Co’s CEO and co-founder, Randall Cook, and president and co-founder, David Grasso; and Kathy Crawford, regional director of the Office of US Senator Tim Scott (S.C.).
Capital Square’s Huffman commented: “Capital Square is an active developer of luxury properties in growing markets within the Southeast and we couldn’t be more pleased to begin construction on our inaugural project in Charleston. Charleston is a premier market, home to a growing community of high-income families and one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations.”
Method Co’s Grasso added: “We are thrilled to break ground on our first Roost Apartment Hotel in South Carolina and our second project in the city of Charleston. Roost will offer guests in Charleston a comfortable stay in a beautifully designed apartment that feels like a home and the flexibility to stay a few nights or a few months. The building’s design by Morris Adjmi Architects is outstanding; it will be a fitting complement to the classic architectural charm of Charleston.”
