CHARLOTTE – SouthPark Mall is getting a makeover. Owner Simon Property Group Inc. says work will begin this month on interior renovations that include refinished columns, new signs and floor coverings, and soft seating and lounge areas with enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity and chargers. The company also will remove columns in Circle Court to provide more open space.
Plans include revamping the main entrance on Sharon Road, adding fresh paint and framing to the canopy, improved landscaping and fountain and upgraded LED lighting. A two-sided gas fireplace will be added to West Plaza, the outdoor space near Dick’s Sporting Goods.
The last renovation at SouthPark was in 2004, with the addition of the Nordstrom wing and luxury retailers that include Burberry, Kate Spade New York and Louis Vuitton. The latest project is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
“Our goal is to continuously evolve as a shopping and dining destination,” said SouthPark General Manager Randy Thomas. “This renovation project further strengthens SouthPark as a premier landmark and provides shoppers in the Charlotte community and surrounding areas with a one-of-a-kind shopping experience.”
SouthPark Mall, developed in 1970, is anchored by Belk, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom and features six full-service restaurants.
