Horizon Eye Care will close its Arboretum office and open a new one in the Waverly development in south Charlotte when its new building there is completed this fall.
Horizon will occupy 8,300 square feet in a 22,000-square-foot medical office building next to Novant Waverly’s urgent care and family health care practices, according to a statement this week. Construction on the new building began in February.
Horizon said optometrists Kala Brewer, Marc James and Paul Marvin and ophthalmologist Judy Hustead will relocate from the Arboretum to the Waverly office. Also joining the new location will be Stephen Daugherty, who focuses on pediatrics, and Miriam Ridley, who focuses on retina services.
Charlotte-based Horizon was founded in 1997 and provides an array of services, from basic eye exams to comprehensive ophthalmology procedures like glaucoma exams. Its new Waverly office at 11835 Southmore Drive will have a full-service optical and contact lens department.
Construction began in August on Waverly, the 90-acre, mixed-use development on Providence Road just south of I-485. Along with 25 other retail shops and restaurants, Waverly’s tenants include a 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods and the 22,000-square-foot medical office anchor Novant Health, which opened in November.
Developers Childress Klein and Crosland Southeast are spearheading the project, one of the largest mixed-use developments underway in Charlotte.
