Page 24 of 89 23 K nown as the city's most upscale and robust shopping district, the crown jewel of South Park is retail mecca SouthPark Mall. It's hard to believe that the expansive mall, which houses exclusive luxury retailers (we're talking Chanel-exclusive), was once a plot of farmland teeming with cattle and hogs. e land was owned by former governor Cameron Morrison, whose brick manor (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) sits in what is now a shopping center called Morrocro Village. A vibrant juncture of high- end condos, landscaped business parks and fun-filled attractions, South Park is peppered with outdoor places like Sharon Square and Piedmont Town Center that feature boutiques, lounges and eateries. Along the main thoroughfares of Sharon, Fairview and Colony roads, tree-flanked old houses, churches and schools make this an idyllic place for families and professionals to call home. WHILE YOU'RE THERE • Spend an afternoon shopping Phillips Place's stylish tenants (think: Restoration Hardware, J. McLaughlin and Copper Penny). • Learn about acidity, aromas and perfect pairings at one of Corkbuzz Restaurant & Wine Bar's Wine 101 tasting classes. • Mark your calendar for the Charlotte Symphony's Summer Pops music series and seasonal festivals at Symphony Park. • Restore your body with Living Kitchen's organic, 100 percent plant-based cuisine and nutrient-rich, cold-pressed juices. • Gather around the table at Cafe Monte French Bakery & Bistro for a brunch that will make you forget about pancakes and obsess over crepes. 1 Sharon Square 2 Symphony Park 3 Piedmont Town Center SOUTH PARK ritzy, polished, inviting PHOTO 1 BY TIM ROBISON; PHOTOS 2 AND 3 BY PATRICK SCHNEIDER PHOTOGRAPHY 2 1 3
