The center is estimated to create an additional $6.5 million dollars in annual sales tax revenue for the state.
The new outlet center will be co-owned by Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. and Peterson Companies and will be branded as Tanger Outlets National Harbor. Tanger and Peterson will each own a 50% interest in the project and will jointly provide site development and construction supervision services to the venture.
