Williamsburg Outlet Owner Looking to Build Center in Norfolk

The nation’s largest owner of retail properties is looking to build an upscale outlet center near Norfolk International Airport that would replace at least part of a city-owned golf course.

Simon Property Group Inc., which owns Williamsburg Premium Outlets, has made an offer for land on Northampton Boulevard, the site of Lake Wright Golf Course, according to sources who would speak only anonymously because the project has not been announced.

Details, such as what Simon offered to pay and when a deal might be completed, were not available. There is also no information on potential tenants. But one source told The Virginian-Pilot the project would be the most significant retail development in Norfolk since MacArthur Center opened downtown in 1999.

If the project is like other recently opened Simon outlets, it could create 800 to 1,000 retail jobs and about 200 construction jobs. The city is not offering tax incentives, the sources said.
