Urban Redevelopment Comes to Charlotte’s SouthPark Community
Located in the heart of one of the Carolina’s most-desired sub-markets, Apex SouthPark is a creative and complex redevelopment on a nine-acre site formerly home to the Sharon United Methodist Church. A joint venture between Childress Klein and Ascentris, the mixed-use development will bring two, 12-story towers to the area, offering 355 luxury apartments, 90,000 SF of ground-floor retail and entertainment space, a 175-room full service hotel with rooftop amenities, a six-floor parking garage and a new worship center for the church, rebranded as SouthPark Church.

In planning one of the city’s largest redevelopments, the project team navigated a complex rezoning process to accommodate the variety of uses. They also worked directly with the church to find innovative ways to incorporate their community needs within the larger project. This sophisticated development is across from one of the region’s premier shopping destinations and will attract local and regional patrons, increase neighborhood connectivity, and continue the evolution of the SouthPark’s brand as the leading upscale destination in the Carolinas.
Bohler’s contribution to this project included site civil design, permitting, rezoning, and landscape architecture that addressed regulatory and site challenges, accommodated the unique mix of uses and maximized the infill site.
Phase 1 apartments and retail are anticipated to come online in early 2020, with the entire project scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2021. Leasing is currently underway, with Steak 48 recently announced as the first confirmed tenant. For more information on Apex SouthPark, click here.
