Tanger Factory Outlets is slated to open within 12-15 months at the National Harbor, and is expected to provide 900 construction jobs and roughly 900 part-time and full-time jobs.

A spokesperson for Prince George's County, Md. says the Tanger Factory Outlet Centers is expected to fill the space with name-brand and upscale outlet stores. The deal was announced by the Peterson Companies out of Fairfax, Va.

Peterson's is National Harbor’s developer. The project will be co-owned by Peterson and Tanger Factory Outlet Centers.

The mall is expected to create more than 400 construction jobs, will provide roughly 900 full-time and part-time employment opportunities in Prince George's County.

The project will break ground later this year, and will take about a year to 15 months to complete.
