The Streets at SouthpointEdit profile
The Streets at Southpoint and Main Street is a super-regional shopping mall located in south Durham, North Carolina, adjacent to Interstate 40 and Fayetteville Road. The mall boasts the state's first Nordstrom department store and was also the first in the state to incorporate an outdoor village concept when it opened in 2002, better known as "Main Street." This section includes a Barnes & Noble, Pottery Barn, an Apple Store, a 16-screen cinema operated by Stone Theatres, and a number of restaurants such as Maggiano's Little Italy, Firebirds Rocky Mountain Grill, The Cheesecake Factory, Champps Americana, Rockfish, and California Pizza Kitchen. Security is managed by Valor Security Services. Valet parking services are provided by Charlotte based Park Inc. and sponsored by Johnson Lexus . The opening of the new mall led to the demise of Durham's older South Square Mall. Once The Streets at Southpoint opened, Belk and J.C. Penney closed their locations at South Square, as did a number of other tenants. Belk eventually closed its other locations in the Durham area at Northgate Mall and University Mall in Chapel Hill as well. The construction of the mall in what was previously a predominantly working-class community, Kentington Heights, led to many adjacent upscale townhouses and condos, as well as other shopping centers in the same area. The road that encircles most of the parking lot is known as Southpoint Boulevard. There are multiple entrances into the mall complex from Renaissance Parkway and Fayetteville Street. The Streets of Southpoint mall will be expanding soon, with a 25,000-square-foot (2,300 m 2) Crate and Barrel store expected to open in spring 2011. The Crate & Barrel store will be adjacent to Urban Outfitters.
