The outlet mall planned for Byron Township will take a big step forward this summer.

The Tanger Outlet Mall groundbreaking ceremony will take place on August 21.

The mall cleared a few hurdles along the way before receiving approval from the Byron Township Board in December.

WZZM-13 reports the groundbreaking ceremony will take place on August 21 and Governor Rick Snyder will attend the ceremony.

The mall will be on 84th Street just off of 131. It is scheduled to open in fall of 2015.
