Fast Fact: The neon Ratcliffe's Flower sign still hangs outside the Mediterranean Revival Style Ratcliffe Flowers building, a Charlotte landmark. Built in the 1920s, the building that originally housed a florist shop became a restaurant (Carpe Diem) in the 1990s which is now Bernardin's. When the building was transformed into the midrise Ratcliffe Condos in 2002, the shop was moved during construction and then replaced in its original position. The residential and retail building was then constructed around the original Ratcliffe's shop.
The Ratcliffe is connected to the Overstreet Mall. It's part of the Wells Fargo complex at Tryon and 2nd St. It is not a "mall" in the traditional sense, but an indoor network of retail and service shops that connects several office buildings. Though it lacks the glamor of streetside shopping, it makes a good alternative to walking outside on cold or rainy days. Its most prominent entrance is through the Wells Fargo Atrium on the corner of Tryon & 3rd St., though several other entrances are convenient as well. Overstreet Mall's tenants include Dean & Deluca, Merle Norman Cosmetics, Just Fresh! Market, Julie's, Belk Express, the Center City YMCA, as well as plenty of restaurants and a variety of other services, including dry cleaning, salons, shoe repair, etc.
