Starting this summer, Simon Property Group will begin development on a premium outlet mall in Marana at the Twin Peaks/I-10 interchange.

The 360,000-square-foot outlet mall will offer daily savings at its estimated 100 designer and name brand stores. The outlet mall will cost $90 million to build.

“Marana is a growing community that offers scenic wonders, outdoor activities, world-class resorts, dining and entertainment for area residents and visitors to enjoy,” said Danielle DeVita, senior vice president of development and acquisitions for Premium Outlets Simon. “The site of the future home of Tucson Premium Outlets has visibility from Interstate 10 and will offer easy access to shoppers from the regional area and beyond.”

Within the last two years, Simon Property Group has opened outlet malls in or near New Hampshire, Toronto, St. Louis and Phoenix, said DeVita. Development is currently underway near other cities such as Columbus, Ohio, Charlotte, N.C., Minneapolis and Montreal.

“Now more than ever, shoppers are looking for great deals,” said DeVita. “Premium Outlet Centers offer a depth of selection, significant savings and consistent quality from recognized designers and brands.”

The outlet mall is expected to open in summer of 2015.

Also building a premier outlet mall in northwest Tucson is Pima County. Builders from AWE Talisman plan on building 100 outlet stores just off the southwest corner of Interstate 10 and Avra Valley Road and a wildlife corridor between the Tortolita and Tucson Mountains.

Avra Valley Mining and Development LLC currently owns the land, which is expected to be sold in time for construction to start this summer.
