Byron Center Outlet Mall One Step Closer To Reality

WZZM

Earlier this week, the proposed Tanger Outlet Mall for Byron Township was discussed at the Byron Township planning commission meeting.

A packed house was on hand as the discussion was open to public comment.

The commission gave their approval.

Most in attendance opposed the outlet mall.

WZZM has more:

Many residents at Monday night’s meeting opposed the development, voicing concerns over traffic and congestion. A small number of people did say they favored the project.

Carl Close is the construction manager for Tanger Outlets. “We are not one of the developers that says its either our way or the highway. We work with the community to make sure our center fits into the local community.”

The mall is expected to have 80 stores, create 800 jobs, and receive 4 million visitors annually.

Construction would start soon and the mall could open in late 2015.

The next step for the project is approval from the Byron Township Board. It will be discussed at their meeting on December 9.
