New Brewery, French Restaurant, and Coffee Shop Announced Near NoDa


The developers of the historic Tompkins Hall property just announced three new major tenants for the renovated historic mill between Uptown Charlotte and NoDa.

The three new tenants include;

  • Fonta Flora Brewery – a craft brewery out of Morganton will open its first Charlotte brewery, including a 2,400 square-foot tasting room, and a 5,000-square-foot outdoor patio area.
  • Aix Rotisserie – a new 500-square-foot French Resturant opening as a sister of Charlotte’s Aix En Provence’s resturant.
  • Undercurrent Coffee – Plaza Midwood’s Undercurrent will be opening their second full-service coffee and espresso bar in a 500 sq ft space at the historic mill.

The developers want to keep the history of Tompkins Hall, while also transforming the complex into a modern pedestrian hub.

The current plans call for a large courtyard facing uptown, 449 parking spaces, 60,000 square feet of restaurants, retail, and a farmers market, and 100,000 square feet of loft-style, open-floor offices.

Jay Levell, one of the main developers with White Point Partners recently commented, “We’re going to create some of the best outdoor space in Charlotte.” The large building’s large windows will be restored to bring light in to the mill and create an “indoor-outdoor” feel as well.
