Charlotte, N.C., Jan. 10, 2017 — Charlotte-based commercial developers Crosland Southeast and Childress Klein announced that Mainstream Boutique, Source1Phones and Starbucks have signed leases at the 90-acre Waverly development near the intersection of Providence and Ardrey Kell roads in South Charlotte.
“These signings add to the diverse mix of national, regional and local retailers at Waverly and bring us another step closer to our vision for a walkable, mixed-use destination in south Charlotte,” said Chris Thomas, partner at Childress Klein.
Mainstream Boutique, which has leased 1,392 square feet next door to District 5 Interiors, is a women’s retailer that sells unique clothing, accessories and giftware to women of all ages and sizes. Founded in 1991 by Marie DeNicola, the company has franchise locations in 22 states, including stores in Mooresville and Winston-Salem, and launched its exclusive clothing line, Mac and Me, in 2014. Owned by Dawn Talley, the Waverly store will be Mainstream’s first in Charlotte and is expected to open this spring.
Source1Phones, a boutique mobile phone sales and repair company, has leased 944 square feet at Waverly next door to Carolina Ale House. Based in Charlotte, Source1Phones provides a wide variety of repair services for phones, tablets, MacBooks and other products. With its first location in Fort Mill, S.C., Source1Phones has signed leases for three additional locations in the Charlotte market and plans to open its Waverly store this summer.
Starbucks is building a freestanding, 2,300-square-foot store at the southeastern corner of Providence Road and Golf Links Drive, a newly signalized intersection. The company expects to open at Waverly in late spring. The premier roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world, Starbucks has more than 25,000 stores around the globe.
The new tenants join more than 30 other retail shops and restaurants that have signed at Waverly, which will combine a light, contemporary architecture with traditional placemaking in south Charlotte. A 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods, Waverly’s retail anchor, will open in spring 2017, and 22,000-square-foot medical office anchor Novant Health opened last fall. Retailers including Chuy’s and ULTA Beauty have also recently opened their doors at Waverly. Mattress Firm plans to open this month, and Chick-fil-A and Panera Bread plan to open in February.
