Modeled after Knightsbridge, a high-end residential and retail district in central London, The Village of SouthPark mixes specialty retail and dining with housing, repositioning the single-use mall into a well-integrated community. The horseshoe-shaped building is designed around an urban main street, providing an elegant shopping experience at a comfortable pedestrian scale for shoppers to see and be seen.
Taking cues from fine Southern gardens, the elements of main street include brick sidewalks, cobblestone paving accents and large stone planters, with views terminating at a central vista. Garden trellises covered with Carolina Jessamine vines provide a charming setting for shoppers to linger, while the dining plaza invites larger gatherings in a park-like setting around a central water feature. With opportunities to meet, mingle, stroll, and discover, the timeless design creates a memorable place for Charlotte, redefining SouthPark Mall as a high-density mixed use center rather than a single shopping destination.
