David Weekley Homes begins construction on model homes next month
Charlotte, N.C., Sept. 28, 2015 – Charlotte-based commercial developers Crosland Southeast and Childress Klein announced that they have signed three new tenants for the 90-acre Waverly development near the intersection of Providence and Ardrey Kell roads in South Charlotte: ULTA, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, and Taziki’s.
“Our concept for Waverly was to provide a blend of retail, restaurants and services that will enhance the lifestyle of South Charlotte residents,” said Chris Thomas, partner of Childress Klein. “We’ve selected ULTA, the largest beauty retailer in the country, and Hand & Stone Massage to complement Waverly’s other retail options. Additionally, Taziki’s fits with our vision of providing healthy dining choices at a great value.”
ULTA (11,000 sq. ft.) – As the country’s largest beauty retailer, ULTA provides cosmetics, fragrance, skin and hair care products, as well as salon services in 817 stores in 48 states, including four others in Charlotte. ULTA offers more than 20,000 products from 500+ brands in a range of price points, including ULTA’s own private label. Each store offers a full-service salon featuring hair, skin and brow services. ULTA is known for its personalized service, inviting stores and Ultamate Rewards loyalty program.
Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa (2,500 sq. ft.) – Providing services including massage, facials and waxing, Hand & Stone also offers a membership program in which customers can receive a monthly massage or facial at a reduced rate. Massage services include deep tissue, Swedish, sports, hot stone, trigger point and pre-natal, and facial services include signature facials, anti-aging, exfoliations and peels, and Microzone treatments. In addition, Hand & Stone sells products from professional skin care brands such as Dermalogica and ClarityRx.
Taziki’s Mediterranean Café (3,000 sq. ft.) – Specializing in Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, Taziki’s is a fast-casual restaurant with more than 50 locations throughout the country, including six others in the Carolinas. Inspired by owners Keith and Amy Richards’ 1997 vacation to Greece, Taziki’s offers a variety of Mediterranean dishes, including grilled meats, sandwiches, gyros, salads, soups and vegetarian dishes. Taziki’s was the first restaurant in the country to earn the REAL Certification from the United States Healthful Food Council, which recognizes restaurants that strive to provide nutrient-dense fruits, vegetables and grains; emphasize local and organic ingredients; and serve meals made from scratch with minimal processed food.
These new tenants join more than a dozen other retail shops and restaurants that have signed, including a 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods, Waverly’s retail anchor, and 22,000-square-foot medical office anchor Novant Health, which will offer an urgent care and family healthcare, including pediatrics, physical therapy and other services. Novant Health is set to open later this year, and Whole Foods is expected to open in 2016.
Previously announced tenants include:
In October, David Weekley Homes is expected to start construction on its two furnished model homes. The Whitford, the model home for the cottage series, features two stories, 3,727 square feet, five bedrooms, four full baths, one half-bath and a two-car garage. Other special features include a keeping room adjacent to the family room, a super shower in the Owner’s Retreat, an upstairs bonus room and granny flat over the garage, featuring a full kitchen, full bath and combined bedroom and living room space.
The other model home, The Equinox, is a two-story executive series home with 3,453 square feet, including four bedrooms, four full baths, one half-bath a and two-car garage. Additional features include a study with fireplace, two-story family room with corner fireplace, curved staircase and a retreat. This home is currently being built in Avignon, located in SouthPark, but will feature new elevations in Waverly.
David Weekley Homes will also soon start construction on six showcase homes in the cottage and executive-style series, expected to be completed by the end of the year. The 31 executive-style homes will feature Old World European architecture, 11-foot ceilings and high-end touches similar to David Weekley Homes’ Avignon community in SouthPark. The 39 cottage homes are modeled after historic houses in Myers Park and Dilworth. Executive homes will measure about 2,800 to 4,200 square feet, while cottage homes will be about 2,400 to 3,800 square feet. Construction on townhomes is expected to begin in the summer of 2016.
Construction on Solis Waverly, a 375-home apartment community, started earlier this summer and is expected to be completed by the spring of 2016.
