Groundbreaking held for Norfolk Premium Outlets
Indianapolis-based Simon Premium Outlets broke ground on a Norfolk retail center on Thursday.
Slated to open in summer 201, the center, Norfolk Premium Outlets, is expected to house about 85 retailers.
The project will have 332,000 square feet of leasable space.
Mark Silvestri, chief operating officer for Simon, said the center will generate more than 500 jobs during construction and 800 full-time and part-time jobs when the project is completed.
