ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – This morning ground was broken on a second outlet mall in Chesterfield. Taubman Prestige Outlets is building at a site north of Highway-40 near the Boone’s Crossing exit. Plans call for a 49-acre open-air shopping center with more than 100 stores. Two weeks ago, Simon Properties broke ground on an outlet mall near Spirit of St. Louis Airport. It will have 85 store, including Banana Republic, Gap and J-Crew factory stores.
Both centers are set to open in the fall of next year, and some stores like Brooks Brothers, Nine West and Famous Footwear have committed to both centers. So, we’ll have to wait and see how those leases get worked out.
