CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. has announced plans to develop a new outlet center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

When completed, residents and visitors to Charlotte will have a new destination for fashionable savings on merchandise that is on trend, in season and value priced direct from the manufacturer, the company said.

Tanger intends to develop the 350,000 square foot outlet center at the interchange of I-485 and Steele Creek Road.  There are future plans for a 50,000 square foot expansion as well. 

This section of I-485 is located between I-85 and I-77, and will have direct access from Steele Creek Road and Dixie River Road. 

The project is slated for completion in 2014, upon receipt of governmental development approvals.  The new Tanger Outlets Charlotte will be Tanger's fourth outlet shopping center in North Carolina. The company operates Tanger Outlets Blowing Rock along the Blue Ridge Parkway, Tanger Outlets Nags Head on North Carolina's scenic Outer Banks and Tanger Outlets Mebane which serves the Piedmont Triad and Research Triangle communities. 

The three existing centers create approximately 2,700 full and part-time jobs and generate over $12 million in annual sales tax. The new outlet in Mecklenburg County is expected to create approximately 300 jobs during construction and over 900 full and part-time jobs once the center is open and operating, officials said. 

"We are very excited to begin creating one of the South's premier outlet shopping attractions," stated Steven B. Tanger , President and Chief Executive Officer for Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. "This project represents an approximately $80 million investment by Tanger in the growing Charlotte community and the great state of North Carolina," he added.
