Construction underway at the Strawberry Hill development in south Charlotte is causing several retailers to temporarily close their doors this summer.
Ambiance Hair Salon, The Nail Center, Three French Hens, Phil’s Deli II, Aqua E Vino, Red Rocks, Thai Orchid and A Bonnart Jewelers will all be closed from Monday through Aug. 11, according to MPV Properties, the Charlotte company that handles leasing of the property. They are closing as major improvements are made to the common walkway areas in front of the stores.
The Fresh Market, Rite Aid, BB&T and Sherwin Williams will remain open, however, MPV said.
When the project is complete, the center will include a newly built 24,000-square-foot Fresh Market building that's closer and more visible to Providence Road. The development also will include approximately 17,000 square feet of new shop space at the corner of Providence and Sardis roads.
Some of the new tenants moving in include Tex-Mex restaurant Superica, Hollywood Feed, Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin-Robbins and MOD Pizza.
The newly renovated plaza at Strawberry Hill will include a water fountain, repaved walkways and modern architectural finishes, MPV said.
Five Strawberry Hill apartment buildings were taken down to make way for the market and its parking lot. Construction on the redevelopment is expected to wrap up in early 2019, MPV has said.
