Charlotte, N.C. – Starbucks has signed a lease agreement to open a freestanding coffee house at Sharon Square, a mixed-use community developed by Pappas Properties and Allen Tate Company. Starbucks will be the sole tenant in a new two – story, 3,000 square foot building at the Sharon Road entrance to the community opposite the SunTrust office building and regional headquarters.
“We look forward to the addition of Starbucks to Sharon Square,” said Peter Pappas, CEO and founder of Pappas Properties. “Starbucks adds another walkable amenity to Sharon Square that will be welcomed by our residents and the SouthPark community, ” added Pappas.
