A high-end steakhouse with locations in Chicago, Houston and Philadelphia will debut in the Queen City next year.
Steak 48 will lease 9,100 square feet at the $185 million Apex SouthPark project by developer Childress Klein and real estate private equity group Ascentris. It’s the first confirmed tenant for the development, which will include 345 apartments, a 175-room Hyatt Centric hotel and 73,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space — in addition to a new worship center for SouthPark Church.
Apex SouthPark began construction about a year ago on a 5.5-acre site at the corner of Sharon Road and Morrison Boulevard, the longtime home of the former Sharon United Methodist Church, now SouthPark Church. Steak 48 will be along the Sharon Road frontage of the project.
