Northwood Retail’s The Bowl at Ballantyne has inked deals with three new tenants.

Jim Noble’s Bossy Beulah’s Chicken Shack, North Carolina-based Arrow – Cuts & Shaves and fast-growing fitness chain Solidcore will join six other tenants at that
mixed-use retail, dining and entertainment district in south Charlotte. All three will open in 2024.

This will be Bossy Beulah’s sixth location in the Carolinas, occupying a 2,775-square-footspace with a 1,300-square-foot patio. It will be Noble’s second dining concept to sign onat The Bowl. The
Charlotte restauranteur will open his third Rooster’s Wood-Fired Kitchen in a more than 7,500-square-foot space there next spring.

Arrow will open its fourth Charlotte location in a 1,172-square-foot space on the southeast corner of The Bowl. The concept is independently owned.

Solidcore, a 50-minute full-body and strength-training workout on a Pilates-style reformer, will move into a 1,760-square-foot space next to Arrow.

Ward Kampf, president of Northwood Retail, told Charlotte Business Journal that he’snot surprised by leasing momentum at The Bowl. Kampf said bringing on The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery as the anchor tenant last spring made the development very attractive, especially to local establishments that see the potential there.

“Ballantyne was 545 acres of all office with hotels, and we saw a huge a huge void (in retail),” he said. “It’s really important to have these great local tenants like Bossy’s and OMB. Any time you can do something of scale and have the locals see it, it’ll make for a really unique offering.”

The first phase of The Bowl at Ballantyne will include up to 70,000 square feet of retail space as well as 350 apartments.

Additional tenants will include Harriet’s Hamburgers, Honeysuckle Gelato and Drybar. A second phase is expected to add another 25,000square feet of retail space and an additional apartment tower. The Bowl is 60% leased, and Kampf said they’ve had interest from a good mix of tenants, particularly what he calls “soft-line retailers” such as clothing boutiques, athleisure concepts and health and beauty stores.

“It reminds me a lot of Legacy West, where it started very food heavy and evolved overtime,” he said. “I think the same thing plays out here.”
