Making Your Next Fifty Years Your Best Fifty Years

When developer Tony Berry of The Berry Companies started thinking about creating his first 55+ active adult community, he knew it would need to be unlike anything he’d seen before. Berry understood that while today’s population is aging, people are living longer and they want those years to be active, productive, and meaningful. On top of that, they want to be able to “age in place,” transitioning as their needs change without having to change their address. That meant a variety of housing options along with an uncompromising collection of features and amenities.

Now, just a few years later, Berry’s vision is quickly becoming a reality. Revel at Carolina Park, a 45-acre active adult gem situated inside one of the Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina’s premier master-planned communities, is just a few months away from welcoming its first residents. Located minutes from historic Charleston and some of the east coast’s favorite beaches, Revel at Carolina Park is preparing to set a new standard for 55-plus living.

Revel at Carolina Park can really change the way people look at living their second 50 years,” said Berry. “We’re creating a thriving, connected, wellness-oriented community for people 55+ who are looking to enjoy a simpler lifestyle and make the most out of every day.”

Plans for the “Un-Retirement” community feature a variety of right-sized housing options for each life stage as residents age. 130 cottage homes will be created by David Weekley Homes’ Encore division, offering attractively priced, single-story living. 234 elegant one and two-bedroom apartments professionally managed by Greystar will provide residents with a carefree and maintenance-free lifestyle. And for those requiring a little more of a helping hand, assisted living and memory care residences managed by highly-regarded and family-owned Senior Solutions will offer a wide range of care options

Among the community’s key features is an 8,000-square foot Wellness and Recreation Center, which will be home to a resort-style outdoor pool, expansive workout and fitness facilities, yoga and Pilates studio, spa and treatments rooms, and social gathering spaces. The facility will have a full-time Fitness & Lifestyle Coordinator to oversee all planning and programming, and residents will receive complimentary wellness and fitness evaluations. Additionally, residents will enjoy access to pickleball and bocce courts, wellness gardens, lakefront walking/biking paths, an outdoor amphitheater, and much more.

“We’re set in the heart of the South Carolina Lowcountry, which is about as beautiful as it gets all year-round, “said Berry. “Within a few minutes’ walk or drive, there are shops, restaurants, pharmacies, a full-service hospital, and even a brand new public library. It’s an ideal location in one of the region’s most popular towns.”

Residential options are perhaps Revel’s strong suit, with a wide range of offerings. Construction is already well underway on the Revel Active Adult Apartments, and pre-leasing has begun with the first occupancy anticipated later this summer. Managed by nationally-acclaimed Greystar, these elegant 1- and 2-bedroom units boast a long list of standard features, with some units offering covered parking and even small private yards. For leasing information, call 843.633.2856. Construction on four model cottage homes created by Encore by David Weekley Homes is expected to begin shortly, while The Marsh Assisted Living & Memory Care is aiming to welcome its first residents in early 2022.

“We’re making life easy and giving people the opportunity to really enjoy this special time of life and the freedom that comes with it, concluded Berry. “Everything about Revel at Carolina Park will be about living the best life possible in the best environment imaginable.”
