The Charlotte Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission is looking into historic status for the site, which is the oldest suburban shopping center in Mecklenburg County. Opened in 1930 in the 700 block of Providence Road, the Classical Revival buildings were originally called the Myers Park Shopping Center.
