The Waverly development in south Charlotte will soon get three new tenants: upscale furniture store District 5 Interiors, gift shop Simply Grand! and Mattress Firm.
Waverly, the new 90-acre development on Providence Road just south of Interstate 485, will also include Whole Foods, Hilton Garden Inn, residences, medical offices and more than 25other retailers including ULTA, Ivy & Leo, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt, Polished Nail Bar and Chipotle.
“We are excited to bring in upscale, locally owned businesses like District 5 Interiors and Simply Grand! for those neighbors who wanted a gift boutique and high-end fashionable home furnishings at Waverly,” Chris Thomas, a partner at Childress Klein, said in a statement.
Construction on Waverly, one of the largest mixed-use developments underway in Charlotte, began last August. Developers Crosland Southeast and Childress Klein are spearheading the project.
An opening date for the three newly announced tenants was not immediately available.
Here are the details on the new retailers:
▪ District 5 Interiors specializes in “quality, casual lifestyle furniture and accessories,” developers said. The 2,400-square-foot Waverly store will be the retailer’s second – District 5 first opened on West Morehead Street in March 2015.
▪ Simply Grand! will open a 2,630-square-foot boutique in Waverly. The retailer offers Southern style clothing for men, women and children, as well as accessories, décor and gifts.
▪ Mattress Firm will open in a 4,018-square-foot space facing Providence Road, next to CVS.
