Piedmont Town Center rounds out retail, dining lineup

Piedmont Town Center, the office, restaurant and retail complex in the SouthPark area, has added a few high-profile names to its tenant lineup over the past several months.

"We're excited to have the momentum, and hoping to continue that," said Betsy McIntyre, Piedmont Town Center's vice president of retail and leasing.

In February, Tour Tennis opened next to George's Brasserie. The 2,400-square-foot store offers tennis supplies and services such as stringing racquets.

J. Sam's, a new wine bar, opened in March in the former Dolcetto's wine bar spot. Brought by owner J. Sam Daniels, the place also offers spirits and food, including appetizers, entrees and desserts.

And a home furnishings store, Brock Moran Home, has signed a lease for 5,400 square feet at Piedmont Town Center. Brock Moran will be located next to Taco Mac. The store, which has a current location at the Village at Robinson Farm, is targeting a September opening.

Adding two more dining options at Piedmont Town Center, frozen yogurt store TCBY opened a location there at the end of May, and Cast Iron Waffles opened last week. The store is the second for Cast Iron Waffles, a South Charlotte favorite, while TCBY is operated by Sam Batt, Charlotte's preeminent frozen yogurteer.

There are still vacant spaces to lease at Piedmont Town Center. The three remaining suites range from 1,600 to more than 5,500 square feet. 

McIntyre said the center's focus has been on leasing to quality tenants. "We haven’t just taken orders to fill space with a warm body," she said.
