CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hendrick Construction, Inc. will build an Uptown location for Rooster's Wood-Fired Kitchen in 1 Bank of America Center's Urban Garden – the second location for the popular SouthPark restaurant.
The 5,000-square-foot Uptown location will be built with handsome and rustic architectural features such as antique reclaimed barn wood, hand-forged iron and built-in wooden wine racks.
"We want a second location in Charlotte before we take the Rooster's concept to other cities in the Southeast," said Jim Noble, owner and chef. "We think the Urban Garden is one of the best locations in Center City, and we will benefit from six hotels within a block or so of our location. In addition to a great lunch business, we feel very confident as an alternative to higher-priced restaurants in the downtown area. Rooster's will be a very comfortable and casual restaurant."
The restaurant will feature two levels with access from College Street on the first floor and access from the Urban Garden on the second floor. The first level will contain a wine bar and connect via a wide staircase to the second level, which will hold the restaurant and kitchen.
The architect is The Johnson Studio of Atlanta. Many of the design elements will be similar to the original Rooster's location in SouthPark, including the warm wood features, communal seating and accent lighting.
Construction is expected to begin this summer.
"We're excited to work with Jim Noble again and deliver Charlotte's next great restaurant," said Roger Hendrick, president of Hendrick Construction. "The Urban Garden location presents a unique set of challenges, but we're eager to get started."
Hendrick also built the Rooster's Wood-Fired Kitchen location in SouthPark as well as Noble's other Uptown restaurant: The King's Kitchen.
The Urban Garden was designed as a visually inspiring multi-level atrium with gathering space for events ranging from casual meetings to expansive black-tie receptions and galas. The venue, located at 5th and College Streets, is across the skywalks from Founders Hall.
