Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets

Recently I went to the Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets to visit my Kids Supercenter store there.

Lighthouse Premium Outlets
Developer: Chelsea Property Group/Simon
601 Wabash Street
Michigan City, IN 46360
(219) 879-6506
Regular Hours: Mon-Sat: 9am-9pm, Sun: 10am-6pm

Directions: Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets is located in downtown Michigan City, Indiana.
From Chicago: Take I-94 east to Michigan City, Indiana, exit 34B. Travel north on US 421/Franklin Street, 4 miles to 6th Street. Left on 6th Street; two blocks to Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets.

After a great visit at my Kids Supercenter store, I walked the center. Here are some of my observations from that visit.

 Vacancies: There were a total of 8 vacancies in the center. They were spread out but were usually in the corners or through corridors between major sections. The center has 120 spaces for a vacancy rate of just under 7%.
In one of the current vacancies they were fast at work on a new Columbia Sportswear Company store.

I did see our common area maintenance charges at work while I was there. Much like my visit to the Crossings Premium Outlets several weeks ago, crews were out painting the columns in the center. Chelsea clearly has a plan in place for early spring painting. 
There is a great gazebo in the center of the mall. I have been making visits to this center for over 13 years and have never seen an event going on here. However I am usually there at non-peak times like Tuesday morning. Not a great time for a mall event.
