Shake Shack, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill and Inizio Pizza Napoletana have signed leases at Birkdale Landing, a retail and office project that is being redeveloped at the intersection of Sam Furr Road and Birkdale Commons Parkway in Huntersville, across from Birkdale Village. These tenants will be joining Jason’s Deli, Medi-Weightloss and Lenox Salons.
“We are thrilled to welcome these well-known local and national concepts, which will be instrumental in revitalizing Birkdale Landing and establishing it as a food and dining destination for the Lake Norman area,” said Paul Darden, Senior Development Manager with Fairway Investments.
Shake Shack (3,200 square feet) is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and griddled flat-top dogs (no hormones or antibiotics – ever), fresh-made frozen custard, crispy crinkle cut fries and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world.
Firebirds Wood Fired Grill (5,600 square feet) Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, a contemporary-polished restaurant, is an energetic twist on the traditional grill featuring a boldly flavored, classic American menu in an inviting, fire-centric atmosphere. Signature menu items include hand-cut, aged steaks and fresh seafood hand-fileted in-house and seared over locally sourced hickory, oak or pecan wood in Firebirds’ scratch kitchen and exposed wood-fired grill. The open, stylish, enticing décor incorporates wood-fired themes and entertaining spaces, such as the outdoor patio with seasonal comforts and the award-winning FIREBAR®. Please visit their website at www.firebirdsrestaurants.com to learn more.
Inizio Pizza Napoletana (2,900 square feet) is dedicated to the art and craft of true neapolitan-style pizza. Using a wood-fired oven that cooks the pizza within 90 seconds, Inizio’s handcrafted pies were named Charlotte’s best by Food Network and are made with world class ingredients, intensive research and passion.
Fairway Investments started construction at Birkdale Landing last fall, demolishing three existing structures at the 8.5-acre property to make way for a new, two-story, 28,000-square-foot office building and three new retail buildings totaling 44,734 square feet. The redeveloped center, expected to deliver in late fall 2020, will feature additional parking and three expansive outdoor plazas with seating for dining.
Fairway Investments purchased the Birkdale Landing property shortly after its 2016 acquisition of the Shoppes at Birkdale Crossing, a retail and office development next door.
JD Yearwood of Park Commercial Real Estate represented Fairway Investments on the retail leases. Holly Alexander and Kenny Smith of New South Properties are leasing the office space. The development team also includes General Contractor Myers and Chapman, Civil Engineer ColeJenest & Stone and BB+M Architecture.
