Around Town

South End is where it’s at

The Story

Construction is humming along South End, with apartments, grocery stores and maybe even more headed its way.

The Facts

– The Pepsi Bottling building at New Bern Street and South Blvd is on the market. The 5.2- acre property is right along the Blue Line and would change the face of South End if developed.

– Across South Blvd from Pepsi, Harris Teeter is set to start construction on a $190 million mixed-use development.

– And just down South Blvd, Publix is finishing up and is set to open later this year.

– Camden Southline Apartments will also open this year, complete with pet spa and dog park.

Terwilliger Pappas is eyeing land at South Blvd and Remount Road for more apartments.

– At least 10 more apartment complexes are in the works or about to be.

C5’s Take

One request: There needs to be another coffee shop in South End, ideally right on South. (Although let’s give props to Not Just Coffee in Atherton Mills.) Perhaps a future spot where Amelie’s can relocate since it’s gotten booted from its uptown perch?
