A life saved by a bond, and fashion


LeMond Hart ushers you into his tiny vintage men’s clothing shop, tucked into NoDa’s Area 15. He rushes behind the coffee bar and offers you a Café LeMond coffee confection, with whipped cream and caramel drizzle.

Racks of men’s clothes perch all about the place – pants and jackets, shirts and vests – and glass cases with lapel pins, cufflinks, shoes and belt buckles dot the shop. Little tables and chairs cluster near the coffee bar, old framed photos and eclectic art line the brightly colored walls, and on a bench snoozes an orange tabby named Garfield.

CPCC friend and benefactor, Allen Tate dies at 84


Charlotte real estate company founder Allen Tate dies at 84

To understand Allen Tate’s influence on Charlotte, just take a drive around town.

Neighborhoods he developed dot the city, from Kingswood to Montibello to Foxcroft.

He helped build what is now Sharon Corners shopping center, about 10 years before SouthPark Mall opened – paving the way for development that has dramatically transformed that area in recent decades.

And, of course, his company’s burgundy-and-gold for-sale signs jut out of front yards stretching from Raleigh to Greenville, S.C.

Tate, founder of the Charlotte-based real estate firm that bears his name, died Monday at his home. He was 84.


The Hornets and FOX Sports Carolinas/SportSouth also donated $200,000 to CPCC’s veterans employment fund

The Charlotte Hornets joined on three separate projects Monday to benefit military personnel as part of its annual day of service.

The team worked with broadcast partner FOX Sports Carolinas/SportSouth and Bank of America in its “Swarm to Serve” effort. The Hornets and FOX Sports Carolinas/SportSouth also donated $200,000 to CPCC’s veterans employment fund.
