Iconic Developer Henry Faison Dies

Henry Faison, one of Charlotte’s most successful and respected developers, and a longtime supporter of REBIC, died suddenly Friday morning at the age of 78.

Throughout his long career, Faison built many of Charlotte’s most recognizable shopping centers and office buildings, including Eastland Mall, One Independence Center, and 101 West Trade. His company, Faison & Associates, also oversaw the $100 million expansion of SouthPark Mall. In 1998, he sold his firm to Trammell Crow Co. for $39.1 million, but later repurchased the retail development business.

Today, Faison Enterprises is a full-service real estate investment, development and management company that manages more than 7.5 million square feet of retail, commercial and residential properties throughout the mid-Atlantic and Southeast.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, December 3 at 11 a.m. at Christ Episcopal Church, 1412 Providence Road in Charlotte. Family will receive guests at the church following the service.
