Novant Health will anchor a 33,000-square-foot medical building at the under-construction Waverly multi-use development at Providence and Ardrey Kell roads in south Charlotte.
Waverly developers Childress Klein and Crosland Southeast on Thursday also announced that tenants will include a 6,073-square-foot Novanta Pizzeria Napolet
ana, a 4,300-square-foot Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt, a 2,500-square-foot Modern Salon & Spa, a Polished Nail Bar and Quail Dry Cleaners. A Who
le Foods Market will anchor the retail component.
“Part of our vision for Waverly was to create a great place for the area holistically,” said Chris Thomas, partner at Childress Klein, in a statement. “Not only do we want to create a great place to live, but to work, dine and look after your well-being.”
The developers are expected to announce three more local and national sit-down restaurants within the next month.
The Novant Health center will occupy 23,000 square feet of the first medical building, relocating some of its services f
rom near the Arboretum Shopping Center further north on Providence Road to a space that is 8,000 square feet larger. The center is expected to open in the fall, and will include an urgent care and offer family and pediatric health care, physical therapy and other services.
Waverly will be Novanta Pizzeria Napoletana’s second Charlotte location, and about 1,500 square feet of the Waverly restaurant will be used for to-go orders. Waverly’s Bad Daddy Burger Bar will be the restaurant’s fifth Charlotte location.
“The next dimension is to design, along with (design firm) Shook Kelley, a synergistic layout that intentionally organizes most of the restaurants around the primary public space, which we are calling The Terrace,” said Peter B. Pappas, lead developer from Crosland Southeast, in a statement. “These restaurants activate The Terrace, creating an environment where people want to come and stay.”
Gwen Glaeser and Tommy Trimble of CNL Commercial Real Estate Property handled the leasing deals, and Travis Hart of Childress Klein is working on pre-leasing the remaining 10,000 square feet of medical office space.
The entire 90-acre Waverly development will include two five- to six-story class-A office buildings, about 375 upscale apartments that will go by Solis Waverly, 150 single-family homes and a total of 250,000 square feet of retail space. The 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods is scheduled to open mid-2016.
