Tanger Outlets, a leading operator of upscale, open-air shopping centers, announced the Grand Opening of its 37th shopping center, Tanger Outlets Nashville. The 290,000-square-foot open-air shopping center, located in southeast Nashville, Tennessee, is the first outlet center and one of the few major shopping centers in the United States to break ground and deliver to the market since 2019.
The center features a transformational design intended to foster onsite experience and consumer engagement, as well as to facilitate product interaction and pickup. This consumer-informed design and an in-demand location – in one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country – have helped Tanger Nashville secure leases for 96.5 percent of its retail and restaurant space. These leases include a distinctive assortment of brands that reflect Tanger's commitment to diversify and enhance the 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."
Tanger Nashville will serve locals and visitors to the greater Nashville community with 60 retail stores across seven buildings and The Green, a central outdoor community space for programming and activations. The center's dynamic and diverse retail mix includes sought-after lifestyle brands and global designers across a range of categories, including fashion apparel and footwear, accessories and jewelry, athletic and athleisure wear, home furnishings, cosmetics and gifts. Guests will also be able to enjoy locally and nationally acclaimed food and beverage options, including sit down restaurants and quick- service offerings. Nearly one quarter of the assortment at Tanger Nashville are brands that are either new to Tanger's portfolio or first to the outlet channel, including several digitally native brands and iconic Nashville eateries.
