Legacy Brings The Rogue to Dilworth
Dilworth is all set to welcome The Rogue to the neighborhood. The Rogue is an authentic Irish neighborhood pub that will remind guests of a visit to Ireland. The look and feel of the pub are real but with modern American amenities like several big screen TV’s. The Rogue also features several Snugs which are small secluded booths.
The ownership group of The Rogue sought out David Tschirhart with Legacy to locate a location. They were based in New York City and had little knowledge of either the real estate or the restaurant scene. David had both and facilitated their long-distance search. The Rogue will be open for lunch and dinner and will serve brunch too.
East Town Market, open air shopping center and office suite complex trades for 13 Million.
Legacy ‘s partner Rodney Faulkner played a referring role in the transaction between Red Hill Ventures and Sterling Global. The center consists of Shopping, Restaurants & Office Suites, all conveniently located in the heart of East Charlotte.
Red Hill Ventures LLC purchased the 182,362-square-foot complex and have plans to revamp East Town Market’s footprint with the goal of bringing healthier food options to the market. Update plans also include improvements to its facade, paint, lighting, parking lot, signage and landscaping. “We look at this area as a gateway to the east,” Faulkner says. “We’re just trying to make this a destination for people in that area and elevate the shopping experience for people that live on that side of town.”
“It will look dramatically different than it looks right now,” says Todd Collins Chief Executive with Red Hill Ventures.
Legacy’s CRE broker, Andy Dinkin is helping tenants capitalize on Charlotte’s booming population growth and new development in a unique way. Dinkin has been assisting tenants seeking space in the Charlotte office and retail market for many years. At his encouragement, renters expand their search to include “for sale” properties to find what fits their personal business needs. After identifying a good fit, Dinkin taps into his list of potential investors to find partners interested in teaming with him to purchase the asset and lease it to the already identified tenant. It becomes a win-win scenario for his tenant clients, his investors and himself. “There’s a scarcity of product I would feel comfortable buying,” he said. “There are more tenants wanting to do things, and more investors. That’s why my tenant representation deals are getting harder and harder to do every passing day.” says Dinkin. he and his investors selectively buy into high-activity corridors that will see good appreciation over time.
“The long-term strategy for Dinkin may be to wade into multi-tenant deals or even development if the type of inventory his clients are looking for isn’t available — a valid concern as the real estate market tightens, especially close to center city.” Ashley Fahey Staff Writer, Charlotte Business Journal
SouthPark will be the new location for Executive Chef, Bill Greene’s latest venture. Green, and his wife, Anita have long wanted to bring their vision to Charlotte after opening their farm to table concept “Artisanal” in Banner Elk, NC in 2006. Known for its contemporary American menu, Artisanal is a western North Carolina favorite.
The couple has spent more than 4 years planning the right timing and searching for the perfect location for their Queen City debut. That space is a 7,800-square-foot space in Piedmont Town Center in SouthPark formally occupied by AZN Azian Cuizine. They were drawn to the space by its soaring ceilings and large kitchen. Green speaks with much excitement of the still-to-be-named venture ”Expect the design to take Artisanal’s current feel and put it in an urban setting. Plans are to incorporate wood, stone and fabrics to give the space a warm feel.” Greene says.
“Fans of Artisanal should expect the same focus on food and service, but a different overall experience in the Queen City. The menu will be progressive American with small plates and shared snacks featured. Seafood will be highlighted, as will local products and produce.” Jennifer Thomas Charlotte Business Journal.
