Hotels

The Flatiron Hotel

The 71 room Flatiron Hotel is an adaptive re-use of Asheville, North Carolina’s iconic, downtown landmark, the Flatiron building which was erected in 1927. The new hotel within the historic Flatiron aspires to fulfill the building’s historic purpose of signaling to the world that Asheville is a place of consequence. The Flatiron Hotel project will draw inspiration from the original “Lost Generation” of the roaring twenties and connect that bygone era with a mobile creative class looking for an escape true to Asheville’s prohibition-era spirit.

Located in the heart of downtown Asheville on Battery Park where it meets the charming, shop-lined Wall Street, the hotel is a short two and a half block walk to Asheville’s famous and historic Grove Arcade and an easy walk to all the best dining, drinking, and entertaining that Asheville has to offer and a short drive to Biltmore Estate and Blue Ridge mountain hiking trails.

Within the Flatiron Hotel guests and locals will find a restaurant featuring a wood burning oven and craft cocktail bar on the ground floor, a rooftop bar with peerless views of the smoky mountains to the west, and, in the tradition of the Flatiron’s nascent era, one may or may not find a hidden speakeasy somewhere within.

The architect of record for the renovation and conversion the Flatiron into a hotel with extensive F&B is Rowhouse Architects of Asheville. The mission of Rowhouse Architects is to create significant places of lasting value. Respectful of the traditions and context, they work collaboratively with their clients and the community to produce innovative solutions to complex design problems. Their award-winning designs have been widely recognized.

The interior design is by Mey & Co which is an emerging design firm that is an off shoot of Reunion Goods & Services. They specialize in the design of hospitality spaces, restaurants, hotels, and retail.

The Indigo Road together with the design teams aims to make the Flatiron Hotel the coolest digs in the city. As authentic and enlightening as a live performance by an Asheville busker, the Flatiron offers timeless adventure with an authenticity and experience unmatched in Asheville’s new wave of dining and hospitality.

The Flatiron building was acquired by the development team of GarageCap and JPW Development in 2019 and the city has approved its conversion into a hotel. The project is expected to complete design development and commence construction in the second half of 2020 with opening in spring 2022.

The Savvy

The 55 room Savvy and its food & beverage offerings will serve as an authentic oasis of Savannah’s past mystique, truest present moments, and its progressive future so that guests and locals alike can discover their personal Savannah haven within a secluded courtyard garden attached to a hotel and a locals-focused restaurant. The guest experience will be built upon helping those visitors seeking a true Savannah experience instead of inauthentic tourist ploys or nouveaux cookie-cutter experiences. 

Located in Savannah’s historic district on East Bay Street between Habersham and Price Streets, the Savvy is within walkable distance to numerous historic and contemporary attractions, brew pubs, retail stores, restaurants and artists' studios in the Savannah Historic District and along the city’s River Street. It will also be in proximity to Interstate 16, The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV).

The architect of record for the project is LS3P of Savannah. LS3P seeks to engage with the community and design meaningful places with proven results that transform. Through a strong commitment to architecture in the Southeastern US, they create architecture that enriches community through a culture of design excellence, expertise, innovation, and collaborative engagement.

The interior design is by Mey & Co which is an emerging design firm that is an off shoot of Reunion Goods & Services. They specialize in the design of hospitality spaces, restaurants, hotels, and retail.

The Indigo Road together with the design teams aims to make the Savvy Savannah’s most unpretentious, boutique hotel. Like an oasis of the moveable feast beckoning guests and locals to soak up Savannah’s great vibe—The Savvy will seek to satiate the instinctive primal drive to escape into a secret garden.

With the development site and buildings acquired and design completed, the Savvy is “shovel ready”. The developers will commence construction when there is a clear resolution to the COVID19 pandemic. Once begun, the project is expected to take 18 months to complete.

The Skyline Lodge

The 41 room Skyline Lodge was acquired by the Indigo Road and its partners in June 2020. The property is undergoing extensive renovations of the existing facility and an addition of a significant events pavilion containing a 3000 square foot event hall with wrap-around terraces. Completion is expected in the winter with re-opening by late winter or early spring 2021. In addition to completely re-done guest rooms and baths and the new event pavilion, The Indigo Road’s award-winning restaurant team is creating a new dining experience in the property’s former dining room complete with an up-to-date craft bar and beverage program. 

The original twenty room retreat constructed of chestnut, local stone, and hand cut cedar shakes, was designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright as a luxe mountain lodge, catering to the wealthy of the 1930’s era. In 1965, a group of investors purchased the remains and a major project ensued adding twenty-one rooms. A restaurant with a Redwood interior and stone fireplaces added warmth to the property. A mid-century modern classic emerged from the rubble and is what exists today. The renovation will lean heavily into a mid-twentieth century aesthetic that will evoke an era of gentile manners, proper cocktails & thick steaks, and a touch of glamour.

Skyline is nestled atop a 4,300-ft. high mountain, surrounded by 50 magnificent acres of old growth conifers and hardwoods. Its high altitude makes a perfect respite from the summer heat. Just outside the town of Highlands and convenient to Cashiers, the Skyline is a good option for those who wish to enjoy a pastoral mountain retreat but have quick and easy access to Highlands and Cashiers. The area abounds with hiking trails, navigable rivers, waterfalls, and foraging for mushrooms and berries.

The Skyline’s design team is led by Mark Williams Design of Atlanta, GA. The Mark Williams Design firm is made up of a deeply experienced team of architectural and interior designers who have been creating signature projects together since 1998. Their philosophy is one that respects the cohesive relationship between architecture and interior design. Having both disciplines under one roof results in a thoughtful and responsive approach and collaborative tone approach which results in an elevated design.
