Carl Dranoff’s Southstar Lofts, slated to open in spring 2014 at Broad and South, will have 10,000 square feet of ground-floor space for retailers and restaurateurs. Today Dranoff Properties sent out a release promoting the location to potential interested parties, noting that with 85 luxury apartments, the businesses will have a built-in customer base.

In the statement, Dranoff says: “Our desire to bring outstanding restaurants and retail to Southstar Lofts cannot be understated. The space at ground level has been properly vented for a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen but can also work to accommodate any retailer that wishes to make this new address along the Avenue of the Arts its home.”
