CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Charlotte's Premium Outlets got the go-ahead on Monday night. City Council signed off on the Simon-Tanger Factory Outlets for southwest Charlotte. Last week, the city staff made the last-minute addition to the agenda. Currently, council members discussed the issue and around 7 p.m Monday. The two companies, Tanger and Simon, are teaming up to build the outlet mall. They plan to break ground this summer at the corner of Shopton, Steele Creek and Dixie River Roads. They aspire to open the shopping center next July. There is expected to be roughly half a million square feet of retail space. The outlets are expected to create about 1,000 full- and part-time jobs. The companies are putting up $82 million. The city and county agreed to repay Tanger and Simon no more than $6 million of that over the next 10 years. People who have lived near outlet malls before are excited to for the outlets. "There is a lot of shopping, that will be something new," said Charlotte resident Susan Crouse. The council will have to rezone the land in the near future.
