“The success of this project did not happen by chance. Unquestionably the [Choate] team’s detail in schedule and planning along with the quality expected from each subcontractor allowed the Charlotte Premium Outlets to open on time and without any issues.” – Z. Paul Cirjak, Director of Construction, Tanger Outlets
This 450,483-SF retail factory outlet mall, which includes 95 designer and name-brand stores, represents a unique joint venture between Tanger Outlets and Simon Property Group, Inc. The mall is located on 42 acres and contains nine separate buildings, food court with multiple restaurants, extensive hardscapes, and fountains. Each of the nine buildings are connected by a covered gallery steel roof structure to provide shelter in the open-air mall.

In an outstanding scheduling effort, construction commenced September with the first stores turned over for upfit in eight months. Final completion was in July, a total of 10 months from commencement.
