Construction of the development is expected to be completed by summer 2023.

Charleston, for all its southern charm and grace, lacks lodging options for extended stays. The problem was amplified during the COVID pandemic, when large parts of the economy were shut down and construction mostly came to a standstill,” said Louis Roger, Founder and Managing Director. “Capital Square is pleased to announce that, despite the many challenges faced during the pandemic, the ground has been laid to build a luxury apartment hotel on the famous King Street.”

The five-story project will feature 50 luxury units, including a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The hotel apartment units will be operated under the ROOST Apartment Hotel brand, a division of Method Residential. The final development will total approximately 32,000 net leasable square feet of apartment and commercial space, including a lush courtyard and rooftop lounge that will be open to the public. The façade will be a modern interpretation of the historic Victorian era aesthetic prevalent in Charleston.

Community facilities will include 44 valet parking spaces, a private and lush interior courtyard that will function as an outdoor lounge, fitness center, library and coworking space, guest lounge, semi- private or balcony and a publicly accessible rooftop lounge with downtown views Charleston and the port.

Located in the Garden District of Charleston529 King Street is in a charming neighborhood filled with Greek Revival and folk Victorian residences. Charleston is known for its coastal charms and historic sites, such as the Morris Island Lighthouse, the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, and McLeod Plantation. Close to a thriving downtown, the property is close to a variety of restaurants, cultural sites, and entertainment venues, including the Waterfront Park Pier and Rainbow Row. It is an ideal setting for those looking for a peaceful neighborhood with access to exciting events nearby. Located near the Charleston College and other notable local institutions, the property is furthermore close to Highway 17 and the important Arthur Ravanel Jr. Bridge, providing easy access to Greater Charleston.

“Capital Square is an active developer of luxury properties in the growing South East markets and we couldn’t be happier to begin construction on our inaugural project in Charleston,” said Whit Huffman, Director of Strategy and Investments. “Charleston is a premier market, home to a growing community of high-income families and one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations. 529 King Street will contribute to this legacy and become a destination of choice for local residents and tourists. »

Capital Square has partnered with Morris Deputy & LS3P as the architect of the building, BL Harbert as the general contractor and Method Residential as the commercial leasing agent and co-developer of the property.
