Indianapolis -- Simon, in concert with joint-venture partner PREIT-Rubin, has broken ground on Gloucester Premium Outlets in Gloucester Township, New Jersey, a multi-million dollar upscale outlet destination that will bring more than 80 retailers to the southern New Jersey market.
Opening summer 2015, Gloucester Premium Outlets is located in close proximity to the Atlantic City Expressway and the Black Horse Pike. It will feature a Food Pavilion with multiple dining options, an outdoor lounge area, lush landscaping, and significant green space to host community events such as musical performances, charity events and children's activities.
