Snooze AM Eatery is opening its second Charlotte location across from Atherton Mill in what’s now called The Avenues at Atherton, formerly The Pavillion where Owen’s Bagel was located.

Other concepts joining Snooze in the revamped mixed-use hot-spot include Silverlake Ramen (a California-based ramen spot), Rockbox Fitness and Polished Nail Bar. A solid starting lineup.

Half the space is still available for lease, and the target completion date of this redevelopment project is later this fall.

Silverlake Ramen: The ramen spot has about a dozen locations now open or opening soon in California, and another North Carolina location in Concord Mills is listed as coming soon. The straightforward menu includes appetizers, rice bowls and ramen. For the ramen you pick your protein (chicken, pork and tofu) and they’ve got seven dishes, including the classic with creamy pork broth, bean sprouts, spinach, green onion, seaweed, black garlic oil and egg. Everything in priced under $15.

Zoom out: The Pavilion at South End recently sold for $7.3 million to Abacus Capital and Big Cypress Capital. This 31,000-square-foot building is undergoing a multi-million dollar redevelopment to spruce up the 1950s-era building while making it prettier and more functional. It’ll now be named The Avenues at Atherton.


Max Mazzone, of Cypress Capital, told the Agenda he’s impressed with the quality of tenants and “Abacus’ original investment thesis around this asset/location; their ability to execute on the original business plan; and the development team’s high-caliber leasing efforts led by Adam Williams.”

“This area of South End is the most dynamic micro-market between Washington, DC and West Midtown Atlanta,” Williams says. “We are excited to bring the excitement of South End and the historic elegance of Dilworth together through this project.

Remaining space: They’ve got two spaces remaining upstairs, one is 1,800 square feet and the other is 5,800 — Williams says they’re “some of the best available retail spaces in the Charlotte market.”

The plaza suites are 1,800-6,800 square feet are have the option of outdoor space, suited for “evening-oriented cocktail/F&B uses, traditional service-oriented retailers as well as high-end showrooms,” according to developers.
