From the Market Street Webiste:
Southern Village's Market Street has the look and feel of a classic main street. Attractive two-and three-story buildings house shops, offices and residences surrounding a Village Green. Though the design of Market Street suggests an older town, the office and retail spaces offer what today's businesses have come to expect ? a short drive from downtown and UNC campus, ample and convenient free parking, a wealth of amenities and state of the art technology.
