Plans move ahead for Tanger Outlet mall

March 4, 2013 by  

Plans for the Tanger Outlet Mall in Charlotte are steadily moving forward as the Charlotte City Council recently voted to grant the outlet mall a tax break.

At a meeting late last month, the city council approved a total of $2m in tax rebates. Developers for the Tanger Outlet mall, which will be located in the southern portion of Charlotte just off I-485, have approached county and city leaders in an effort to obtain a total of $6m in tax breaks. They are asking for the tax rebates to work on necessary repairs and fixes to portions of Steele Creek Road, which is located close to the area in which the mall will be constructed.

While the new Tanger Outlet mall is not yet a done deal, it seems plans are steadily moving ahead. As the new mall begins to take shape, printing companies in and around Charlotte may find themselves with extra business as retail stores, restaurants, and other businesses move into the mall and the surrounding area. These new businesses are likely to need catalog printing, business card printing, and other printing services.

While the Charlotte City Council approved $2m in tax breaks, the county also recently approved a similar amount. Before actual construction on the Tanger Outlet mall can begin, the Charlotte City Council must vote on a change in the zoning of the area. The voting process to discuss any zoning changes in the location is expected to occur this month.
