Charlotte’s South End has seen an exponential rise in popularity over the last decade. New apartment buildings have brought a mix of young millennials, professionals, and families to the area, giving it a youthful, vibrant energy. The borough has also welcomed in boutique shops, new businesses, and mom-and-pop restaurants that have piqued the interest of the surrounding community. Shiel Sexton has been involved in a number of these mixed-use and rejuvenation projects.
Among South End’s many developments is Argos Real Estate Advisors’ 2322 Dunavant Street project. The company selected Shiel Sexton to convert a 50-year-old manufacturing warehouse into a luxury mixed-use space. The 18,000 SF renovation will retain the raw architectural elements of the building, allowing for future tenants to incorporate trendy industrial aesthetics into their own shops.
The 2322 Dunavant Street project will fit seamlessly into the district, as many of the current businesses also reside in rehabbed spaces. A fan of local entrepreneurs, the South End website proudly boasts, “there’s nary a Costco nor Wal-Mart within miles,” (Charlotte City Partners, 2016). When complete, this building will be an ideal new center for neighborhood retailers and restauranteurs.
Shiel Sexton is proud to be part of the revitalization of South End and looks forward to its continued prosperity.
