Bourne Financial Group Celebrates the Grand Opening of Magnolia Bridge at Murrells Inlet

Aug 9, 2023

Bourne Financial Group (Bourne) is proud to announce the grand opening of its newest community, Magnolia Bridge at Murrells Inlet, located near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Class A senior housing community features 170 units, offering a range of living options including independent living, assisted living, and memory care, catering to the diverse needs of the senior population.

Magnolia Bridge, which is operated by SRI Management (SRI), received its license in June and began moving residents into all unit types. The community has already earned a reputation as a beacon of excellence, garnering significant attention in the surrounding community and from leading industry media outlets, such as Senior Living News. Thanks to SRI Management’s exceptional marketing and pre-leasing efforts, the community has already reached an impressive milestone, surpassing 50 percent occupancy in just two months of operations.

Steve Case, Chief Investment Officer for Bourne, commented on the community’s early success: “With the opening of Magnolia Bridge at Murrells Inlet, we closed the books on the most successful preleasing effort in Bourne Financial Group’s history, with over 80 percent of the community’s 170 units leased prior to opening. This success is a direct result of all the hard work and dedication of the SRI team to create a community where seniors feel valued and are treated with compassion. We look forward to serving the Murrells Inlet community for a long time.”

A grand opening celebration, held in July, was a resounding success, drawing a crowd of 150+ individuals including staff, current and prospective residents and their loved ones, representatives from local government, and others from the surrounding area. The event showcased the beautiful amenities, superior dining services, and strong leadership that are hallmarks of communities owned and operated by Bourne and SRI, respectively. The support from attendees demonstrates the strong demand for high-quality senior housing options in the area.

In a statement released by SRI Management, the community’s Executive Director William Burr expressed his enthusiasm about the successful opening and the positive impact it will have on seniors in the area. He stated, “We are thrilled to open the doors of Magnolia Bridge at Murrells Inlet and welcome our new residents. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience that fosters a sense of community, offers unparalleled service, and celebrates each resident’s unique journey.”
