Meridian Place’s master plan includes a mix of retail spaces and build-to-suit opportunities along Monroe Road, Idlewild Road and Conference Drive for retailers and restaurants interested in an attractive location with high visibility made most attractive by Independence Boulevard Freeway Extension project. Interchange improvements at Idlewild Road and Conference Drive provide Meridian Place retailers and their customers a variety of convenient access roads and the scale of an attractive mixed-use community.

Hawthorne’s offers both indoor and outdoor dining as well as a rich array of dishes, craft beers and wines. Rex Cleaners recently opened and is providing alterations as well as dry cleaning services. Wingstop, known for its collection of tasty chicken wings, is the most recent eatery to open at Meridian Place, adding another delectable option or neighbors and residents.
Sprint to anchor second retail building
A second retail building with 10,000 square feet of shop and restaurant space is slated to open Fall 2018 and will include Sprint as an anchor tenant. Interest in Meridian Place’s retail offerings continues to grow with the evolution of the MoRA area. Customer bases for retail and restaurants at Meridian Place range from the M Station apartments and the many residents in the neighboring MoRA communities to the more than 3200 students and their families served by East Mecklenburg High School, McClintock Middle School and Rama Road Elementary as well as the many commuters using Monroe Road, Idlewild Road and Conference Drive each day.
