A group of nearly 200 people gathered Thursday evening for an exclusive first look at Indigo Hall, Charleston's newest premiere assisted living community opening its doors this year. This group of VIP guests included Indigo Hall Legacy Club Members, who will be the first to call the community their home, local and state dignitaries and community leaders.
City of Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg welcomed the crowd in the spacious entryway and elegant dining room of Indigo Hall, before playing a special tune on the grand piano at the community.
"This is a fine facility, it's a pleasure and honor to be here," Tecklenburg said to the crowd. "I'm excited about the opening and the citizens that are living here. It's a beautiful facility, something we can all be proud of."
Indigo Hall, at 509 Standard Way, Charleston, features 101 assisted living apartments and 56 memory care apartments, along with a host of luxury amenities, including a full salon and spa, theater and spacious courtyards.
"We are so proud to be able to welcome guests into this incredible community and really show it off," said Edward Burton, Area Director of Operations. "We are looking forward to moving our first residents in very soon, and providing an extraordinary level of care services for those residents."
Thursday's event was the first time guests were able to tour the finished community, and also included tastings created by Indigo Hall's own culinary team, music by Classical Charleston, and a glimpse into the assisted living and memory care services that will be provided.
"This has been an incredible project to be a part of," said Charles E. Trefzger, Jr., a key developer in Indigo Hall. "We are truly excited for Indigo Hall to be a part of the James Island and Charleston community, and, most importantly, to provide a level of care and comfort that is needed for seniors in this area."
