What’s new at Camp North End in Charlotte, NC

title=

Camp North End has welcomed new tenants over the past year, including La Caseta, Leah & Louise, Grow, Plant Joy and more.

CharlotteFive

Last year around this time, CharlotteFive published a guide to Camp North End. Despite a tumultuous 2020 amid COVID-19, Camp North End weathered the storm, growing its tenant list considerably. Now, visitors will find shops dedicated to charcuterie and plants; stalls serving Southern and Latin cuisine; and a place to cool down with an ice cream pop or craft cocktail.

Developed by ATCO Properties and Management, Camp North End blends Charlotte’s historic buildings with a bright future paved by local makers. And there’s more to come — Camp North End will eventually open the Keswick Platform, where seven pavilions will make space for more tenants. To continue to preserve the venue’s storied past, four Black architects will design the facades for four of these platforms, blending murals with carefully selected materials.

In addition to options to support small businesses through shopping and dining, Camp North End also offers socially distant options to engage with the space through its Skyline Drive-In. Whether you’re craving takeout from your favorite local maker or want to catch a movie, there’s always something to see at Camp North End. Here’s a list of what’s open — and what’s to come:
