Eight months after breaking ground, Tanger Outlets Westgate, a $76 million outlet mall, opened to the public on Nov. 15, reported the Phoenix Business Journal. The 85-store center will be an anchor for the 8 million-square-foot Westgate City Center complex, which will incorporate shopping, entertainment, office and luxury residential elements.
Tanger Outlets at Westgate joins two other anchors at the complex: Jobing.com Arena and University of Phoenix Stadium, according to AZCentral.com. Development of Westgate City Center began in 2005, incorporating restaurants, a 20-screen theatre and a 12-story Renaissance Hotel, completed in 2007.
Phase two will integrate the 328,000-square-foot Tanger center into a 440-unit residential district. Tanger may also add another 80,000 square feet to its property at a future date. Westgate City Center is scheduled for completion in 2015 at a cost of $1 billion.
