Welcome to a Brighter Charlotte Plaza

We would like to officially welcome you to a brighter Charlotte Plaza! We have enjoyed sharing this exciting journey with you and celebrating many milestones through photographs and ‘punny’ subject lines. Thank you for your patience over the course of this extensive renovation.

Our goal was to have the front entrance re-opened by the end of the month. With this goal in mind, our team has worked extremely hard to make this happen; and we are thrilled to inform
you that the front entrance and the new escalators will be opening tomorrow afternoon, Tuesday, May 22nd.

In the coming weeks, you will see contractors on the Plaza and Mall Levels addressing punch list items. Traffic patterns may shift as we work through these items. We will keep you informed of any major changes and kindly thank you for your continued patience.

Please be advised that our brand-new escalators need time to run in order for proper adjustments to be made. To ensure the escalators are tweaked appropriately, they may be temporarily turned off for service at various times. This is common practice with new machinery and is to be expected in the weeks and months to come.
