The redevelopment, set to open in late summer of 2022, will include the addition of Suffolk Punch’s second location. It will feature an open-air pavilion with a green space, stage and a state-of-the-art play area.

It will be at the mall’s West Plaza, located adjacent to Dick’s Sporting Goods.

“Charlotte-area shoppers expect first-class amenities, and that is exactly what this transformational redevelopment at SouthPark will deliver,” said Randy Thomas, general manager at SouthPark.

Construction is set to start in early 2022.

Suffolk Punch at SouthPark will have a nearly 400-seat full-service taphouse, restaurant and coffee bar with two additional free-standing bars. Guests can choose from more than 20 craft beers, handmade cocktails, house seltzers and wine.

“Executive Chef Michael Rayfield will lead the kitchen, bringing Suffolk’s eclectic, ‘surprise and delight’ style menu which rotates seasonally and incorporates hyper local products wherever possible – all while avoiding the use of GMOs and other unhealthy ingredients,” a news release on the announcement read.

Suffolk Punch Brewing and SouthPark will offer a schedule of local, family-friendly performances to take the stage throughout the year.

The nearly 1,900 square foot play area will be accessible to children of all ages and those with disabilities, inviting kids to skip, climb and share in a nature-inspired play space.

The play area also features zones tailored to specific growth stages.

Retailers will remain open and operating throughout the project.
