Charlotte is booming again and proof of that broke ground recently off Steel Creek Rd and I-485 on the west side of Charlotte. The Charlotte Business Journal recently reported that Charlotte Premium Outlets is going to be a joint venture between Simon Property Group (they own the SouthPark Mall) and Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (they own all of the Tanger Outlets… obviously). Last year it was reported that the two companies would each be developing sites in Charlotte but after a long hard look at the numbers (or cold feet) they decided to join forces and combine their efforts into one amazing project. The mixed-use site is suppose to feature 400,000 square feet of commercial space, 90+ stores, and maybe even a 120-room hotel.
Why is this important to a foodie? I’m glad you asked :)
New construction = New Shops = New Restaurants in or around the site. Either directly or indirectly the development of the area will undoubtedly bring at least one restaurant worth adding to our wish list and for that we are pretty damn excited.
