The Was Group, LLC. the largest third-party leasing firm in the retail outlet industry, announced today that it is now the exclusive leasing firm for The Outlet Shoppes of Lake George. Located in Lake George, New York, the outlet center will have a total of 200,000sf making it larger than the other outlet centers in the market---combined. The center will be a 120,000sf expansion of the existing Adirondack Outlet Mall and will be renamed accordingly. Grand Opening for the initial phase of the expansion is set for 2014.

The existing Adirondack Outlet Mall is a very successful 80,000sf outlet center that houses many strong outlet retailers, including Under Armour, Timberland, Children’s Place, Reebok, Dress Barn, Hanesbrands, Famous Footwear, and many others. The new center will combine excellent visibility, access and parking with a race-track concept containing a critical mass of stores within one center to provide the best shopping experience in the market.

 The developers, the Kenny family, have been involved in the outlet industry since its inception in the mid-1980s. The strong demographic and tourism increases over the last few years in the Lake George area have led them to move forward with their plans to expand the existing center by removing an existing hotel to create a 20+ acre site to be home to the center with an additional 40-adjacent acres for future development. The Lake George market attracts over 15-million tourists each year, has a 75-mile population of over 1.75 million people and is a short drive from the metropolitan Montreal area. The Kenny family also noted that approvals and financing for the initial phase of the expansion is already in place and construction has already begun on the site with foundations being poured earlier this week.

According to a statement issued today by The Was Group, “We are extremely pleased to announce today our newest leasing assignment for the Kenny family. The Kenny’s are committed to building on their previous successes with outlet development. The Was Group has very successfully leased several developmental outlet centers over the last few years and we are confident that Outlet Shoppes of Lake George will be another home run!”
