Welcome to Southpark
Major shopping mecca with a wonderful selection of upscale restaurants.
Located six miles’ north of Charlotte’s Uptown neighborhood, SouthPark is both a major residential center and one of Charlotte’s most important business districts. An estimated 40,000 employees work in the SouthPark business district.
SouthPark is named for the sprawling SouthPark Mall at its center. The SouthPark Mall is the largest shopping mall in North Carolina, with close to 1.8 million square feet of upscale shops and restaurants.
SouthPark is an exciting mixed-use neighborhood with many events held here throughout the
year. The Symphony Park amphitheater hosts the Charlotte Symphony’s popular Summer Pops concert series. The SouthPark Mall’s annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony is another seasonal highlight.
Like many of the Queen City’s neighborhoods, SouthPark has some fabulous examples of well-preserved historic buildings. The Morrocroft Mansion and Rotunda Building are two of SouthPark’s most iconic properties.
SouthPark is connected to Uptown by several major thoroughfares, making it easy to access other areas of Charlotte.
