Tanger Outlets Nashville to Break Ground This Month

Site plan from Metro Planning/Nashville Business Journal

Tanger Outlets Nashville, the community’s newest open-air outlet center, will officially break ground on Tuesday, May 17 at 11 a.m  at the Century Farms Mixed-Use Development on Cane Ridge Pkwy in Antioch.

A leader in the retail industry, Tanger Factory Outlets will host local officials and dignitaries to join Executive Chair of the Board Steven B. Tanger and CEO Stephen Yalof to kick off the construction process and give a first look at what’s in store for the shopping destination.

One of country music’s rising stars, Nashville-based Julia Cole, will perform at the groundbreaking and emcee the event. As part of the ceremony, Tanger will present a donation to Friends of Mill Ridge Park, a local nonprofit partner whose mission is to strengthen the community in Southeast Davidson County through environmental protection, nature conservation, and cultural enrichment programs.

The following people will be in attendance and help kick off the construction process:

  • Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe
  • Nashville Mayor John Cooper
  • City Councilmember Joy Styles
  • Oldacre McDonald and Century Farms partners Bill Oldacre and Mark McDonald
  • Tanger Outlets Executive Chair of the Board Steven B. Tanger
  • Tanger Outlets CEO Stephen Yalof
  • Friends of Mill Ridge Park Executive Director Darrell Hawks                            


  1. Bunch of negative nellies. We need more positive comments but some people just live to me negative and try to crush everyone else.

  2. To be fair, Simon focused more on rebuilding Opry Mills than making the Lebanon Outlets work so that just withered away over the decade and is now owned by a company that buys dead malls. Simon is much better at indoor malls in general. Tanger has done a good job with open air outlets. The Lebanon Mall was built with nothing around it, the Tanger Outlets success or failure will be directly tied to the success of Century Farms. Right now, it’s not a bad bet, but if the teetering economy suddenly goes 2008 on us, well. . .you know the rest.

  3. Large shopping malls are going down and out. They might be a novelty for a few, but mainstream shopping has gone online. Bad investment. Focusing on great restaurants and entertainment venues might be the only way to turn a profit for a place like that.
