Carson Reclamation Authority Officials Excited to Announce Start of Construction of Premium Outlet Mall on Tues., Aug. 13th

WHAT:
After sitting vacant for more than 50 years, a prime property owned by the Carson Reclamation Authority, an entity of the City of Carson, will undergo a major transformation as Authority, City and State officials announce on Tuesday morning the much-anticipated kick-off to the construction of the Los Angeles Premium Outlets, a new premium fashion outlet mall in Carson, located about 13 miles south of downtown Los Angeles. The first phase will span 400,000 square feet, and the second phase will include 166,000 square feet.
The premium outlet mall will feature 2,500 linear feet of frontage along the Interstate 405 Freeway. Roughly 515,000 cars pass the site each day along I-405 and the Interstate 110 Freeway. The site has roughly 2.5 million residents within a 10-mile radius and is situated about 11 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

WHEN:
Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019, 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

WHERE:
The ramp of Avalon Blvd. and the Southbound Exit of the 405 Freeway Parking on the corner of Avalon and end of offramp (see map below)


WHO:
Mayor of Carson Albert Robles
Other City Officials
California State Treasurer Fiona Ma
CPCFA Executive Director Renee Webster-Hawkins
DTSC Branch Chief Javier Hinojosa

WHY:
Carson’s leaders persevered and worked closely with the retail developers Macerich (NYSE: MAC) and Simon Property Group (NYSE: SPG) to bring their vision to life with the start of construction. State and local leaders see this high-quality outlet project as one that will add revenue for the city and value to residents for many years to come, attracting locals and tourists from all over the world given the proximity to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and the Long Beach Airport.

HOW:
As currently planned, the project’s shops and restaurants will be elevated above street level and sit atop a ground-level parking deck. Macerich and Simon plan to open the Los Angeles Premium Outlets property in fall 2021. No tenants have been announced.
