(NYSE:SKT) and Peterson Companies hosted an official Ground Breaking Ceremony today to announce that construction has commenced on Tanger Outlets National Harbor. The center is located at National Harbor, the Washington, DC area's premier waterfront resort destination which includes fine restaurants, distinctive retail, office and residences, and a number of world-class hotels including the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, the largest non-gaming hotel on the eastern seaboard. Developed by Peterson Companies, National Harbor comprises 350 acres of prime real estate along the scenic Potomac River in Prince George's County, Maryland.

It will serve as a leading outlet destination for the 8 million residents in the surrounding Maryland, Virginia and D.C. communities. The center is located only 8 miles southeast of the nation's capital which welcomes 33 million annual domestic and international visitors. The center's unique features will include a modern design with a pedestrian friendly layout that will function as an open-air mall with both covered and uncovered landscaped courtyards and park-like settings throughout the complex.

Crew Factory Store, Le Creuset Outlet and many more.
This project features 340,000 square feet of GLA and represents a private investment of almost $100 million dollars. It is one of the largest economic development projects in the County and will create an estimated 600 jobs during construction and approximately 1,000 full and part-time retail jobs upon completion. 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. Tanger Outlet Centers will provide management services, leasing and marketing to the joint venture.
