CBRE Negotiates Four New Leases at Queen City Quarter Mixed-Use Redevelopment in Uptown Charlotte

by John Nelson

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — CBRE has arranged four new leases for retailers and restaurants to join Queen City Quarter, a mixed-use redevelopment of the former EpiCentre property in Uptown Charlotte. The multi-level, 302,324-square-foot development is located along College Street and houses World of Beer, Mortimer’s Café & Pub and Bowlero, all of which recently renewed their leases.

The new tenants joining Queen City Quarter’s tenant roster include Portal 123, a rotating Instagram museum and immersive art experience; Nostalgia Hollow Co., a locally based coffeeshop and home goods retailer; Cajun Market, a fast-casual Cajun-Creole restaurant; and Super Icy Brothers, a frozen dessert shop. All four concepts plan to open in the second or third quarter. Kaitlyn Fitch, Kivett Williams and Katherine Southard of CBRE handled the lease negotiations on behalf of the landlord, an entity doing business as 210 East Trade Street Holdings LLC.

In addition to the leases, CBRE will begin the previously announced renovations and improvements to the property in late spring. Most of the work will be in the property’s 15,462-square-foot plaza and include replacing the pavers along the walkways and installing benches with planters in the main common area. The building’s interior façades on all levels, in addition to the exterior staircases, will also be repaired where needed, and the entire building will be painted.
