We are long-term residents of Charlotte, and we want to be proud of our centers five, ten…twenty years after they open. With our close attention to detail, from the name selection and creation of a logo to the building design and architecture, we brand a place so it becomes an identifiable fabric of the community, a place where people want to spend time.
