Tanger Outlets, Choate Construction Celebrate Nashville Grand Opening

October 30, 2023

Tanger Outlets, Choate Construction Company, Kimley-Horn, and Dorsky + Yue International celebrate the grand opening of Tanger Outlets Nashville, a 290,000-SF open-air shopping center just southeast of downtown. This highly anticipated development houses 60 brand-name retailers across 7 buildings, creating 1,100 full- and part-time retail jobs for the local community.

“This exciting day is the result of close collaboration, creative solutions, energetic teamwork, and a clear vision for the future of Antioch and Nashville as a whole,” says Lacie Simonton, Director of Business Development for Choate Construction in Nashville. “It has been an absolute privilege to work alongside the Tanger Outlets team and our talented trade partners to bring this development to the community.”

In addition to offering convenient access to premium products, Tanger Outlets Nashville uniquely features a well-manicured outdoor recreational space complete with a large screen and stage for a variety of events, delicious dining options, and several hand-painted murals throughout, providing visitors with a dynamic and engaging shopping experience.

“Tanger Nashville was designed by a team inspired to transform what we have come to expect from a shopping center experience,” said Stephen Yalof, President and CEO of Tanger. “I believe we have achieved that vision and created a destination that will serve our guests’ needs and expectations for years to come. Our unprecedented leasing success is a testament to the resilience of physical retail and the market’s demand for our brand of shopping, that can offer a truly differentiated experience to guests and retailers alike.”

As the first outlet center and one of the few major shopping centers in the country to break ground and deliver to market in the last five years, Tanger Outlets Nashville’s consumer-focused, transformational design is perfectly poised to facilitate continued growth one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country. Choate Construction Company is the general contractor, Dorsky + Yue International leads the design, and Kimley-Horn serves as the engineering consultant on the project.
