Demolition is underway at the site of the former Monkey Joe’s play center in the Park Road Shopping Center.

A representative from Edens, which manages the property, told the Observer recently that the space will be home to two restaurants and a bank, though it’s too early to name the new tenants.

The goal is to have them open by next summer, Edens said.

Edens bought the Park Road Shopping Center in 2011 for $82 million and has undertaken extensive renovations. Earlier this year it bought a Harris Teeter-anchored shopping center at Providence and Queens roads for $22.5 million

Edens, based in Columbia, also owns Atherton Mill, where a new Anthropologie will open Friday.

The Park Road center was Charlotte's first open-air retail center when it opened in 1956.
