    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Hawkers Asian Street Fare expects to open in Charlotte’s South End in late January.

    Construction is nearing completion on that nearly 5,000-square-foot restaurant at the Design Center of the Carolinas complex, says Kaleb Harrell, co-founder.

    That location marks the Orlando, Florida-based concept’s first location in North Carolina.

    “We love South End and the very urban feel it has to it. It’s very walkable with some great options within a stone’s throw of each other,” Harrell says.

    Construction on that space — an estimated $1.7 million project — should wrap in December. Harrell anticipates hiring will begin next month.
