WSOC is reporting that the two developers proposing to build a new outlet mall in CLT will team up to build a single mall in the SW of CLT in Steele Creek. This confirms the speculation the CLT market could not handle two of these malls.

Saw Channel 9. As predicted. Hopefully with these 2 developers teaming up, they will offer some new retail choices not already found at Concord Mills and Gaffney.

So for others like me that forgot which was which, the SW Charlotte outlet mall is the Tanger one.

As far as shopping in east Charlotte, is the Mint Hill thing still supposed to happen?

You mean Stallings? Media reporting that it won't happen:

Here's the press release from Tanger:

The Stallings one is the one referenced in the OP. I know these 2 both would have been outlet malls, I was just curious if the proposed regular mall was still supposed to be happening in Mint Hill.

No one will provide a straight answer about "The Bridges at Mint Hill". That's probably why JC Penney didn't wait and opened a store in Matthews. I wouldn't be surprised if Belk did the same thing in that area.

Might be good to break off into its own thread. I'd be interested in hearing more.

The reason why the Bridges at Mint Hill hasn't been built yet is because the original developer had filed for bankruptcy, and issues revolving around the environment on the work site (danger to the Carolina heel splitter mussel). However, as of early 2012, another developer has now taken over, and are slowing hoping they can begin work on the site as soon as possible.

It should be noted that this mall will be built to be an outdoor mall, a second one to be built in NC after the Streets at Southpoint in Durham (which is only a partial outdoor mall). If I recall correctly, it is suppose to have three tenant stores. Since JC Penney is in Matthews, I would presume that Dillards and Belks will still have their stores built there, along with another major retailer. Or, use the third for a movie theater, or something.

The good news about this is that Mecklenburg's transit tax will get a boost from the Steele Creek location. Stallings would have gone to Union county.

I never understood how Stallings could be in two counties.
