Project Scope

Graycor Construction was the general contractor for Waverly Retail Development which is a part of “Waverly” – a 100-acre, mixed-use community along the southern tier of Mecklenburg County in South Carolina. The site, owned and developed by the partnership of Childress Klein, Crosland Southeast and the Matthews Family (known as Waverly Retail, LLC) currently offers restaurants, retail stores, single and multi-family housing, along with an office building, parking deck and hotel. This project consists of 10 retail shell buildings totaling approximately 145,000 square feet for multiple tenants, including Whole Foods (anchor), Ulta 3 (Junior) and Dressler’s, to name a few.

Many different exterior materials including metal and terracotta panels, EIFS, brick and fiber cement panels were used on each of the 10 buildings. Some exterior skin products were selected from overseas.  Sitework included 25 acres of interior roads, hardscapes and general landscaping. Scope of work also included pad preparation, infrastructure and parking lot for CVS/Pharmacy.        

Moving away from the conventional shopping plaza format, this development showcases a “cozy village feel” with its single and multi-tenant buildings set in comfortable surroundings. In the heart of the development lies the exquisite terrace area, featuring a unique fountain, pergola swings and splash pads for kids. This location brings a first taste of two upscale restaurants to the area, Ted’s Montana Grill and The Porter’s House, as part of Waverly’s diverse restaurant culture and nightlife.
