Roost Charleston is a new design-forward, 50-unit development bridging the boutique hotel experience with apartment-style living, located at 529 King Street in Charleston, South Carolina’s historic downtown.
Conceptualized by Philadelphia-based hospitality company Method Co. and designed by the acclaimed Morris Adjmi Architects, the project features 52,700 square feet of space including a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment hotel units, a rooftop lounge and 27,700 square feet of rentable space. Method Co. will operate the property’s rooftop lounge, drawing on significant experience in food and beverage operations to create a space for both guests and locals.
The beautifully appointed apartments with full-sized kitchens and modern appliances will feature contemporary furnishings, antique elements, custom lighting and unique artwork. Additional amenities include an artisanal coffee program curated by La Colombe, a bike share program and recurring resident receptions that partner with local vendors. A dedicated 24-hour concierge desk and on-site services team further enhance and ensure a memorable guest experience.
Located in the highly sought-after “Upper King” section of downtown Charleston, which is home to a concentration of luxury retail stores, restaurants and nightlife, the new apartment hotel will serve as an ideal accommodation for the city’s high volume of annual visitors. The Upper King Street neighborhood also supports a burgeoning tech and start-up scene and represents a growth corridor and exceptional demand generator for higher-end residential and hotel development.
