Tanger Factory Outlet Centers has begun construction on Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods, an outlet mall that will bring over 300,000 square feet of upscale branded and designer retailers to the Connecticut-based casino resort. Tanger is developing the outlet center in partnership with the Gordon Group LLC.
Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., is one of the largest casino complexes in North America and attracts millions of visitors each year. The dynamic environment at Foxwoods Casino complex makes it the ideal location for Tanger’s first outlet linked to a casino.
Visitors will be able to enter the Tanger Outlet Center from two indoor entrances including one in the Grand Pequot Tower and another in the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Hotel. The site will benefit from visitors to the casino looking for non-gaming activities and residents throughout Connecticut looking to shop top brands at a great value.
The projected total cost of this ground up construction project represents an estimated $115 million investment in Connecticut. According to company press materials, the new center will have a positive economic impact for the area by creating an estimated 400 jobs during construction and approximately 900 full- and part-time retail jobs upon completion. Once complete, the center will create an estimated $10.4 million in annual sales tax.
