A pair of developers have unveiled plans for nearly 450,000 square feet of outlet shopping off of Route 270 in Clarksburg, a project on par with the Leesburg outlet plaza that could derail a competing outlet plan for Ten Mile Creek.
Bethesda-based Streetscape Partners and New England Development, a Massachusetts firm, have signed a contract with Adventist HealthCare to buy 47 acres on the west side of I-270 just south of Clarksburg Road. They plan to build an outlet center that Ron Kaplan, co-managing principal of Streetscape Partners, said would resemble a “next generation” version of the Leesburg outlets to be called Clarksburg Premium Outlets at Cabin Branch.
The developers are planning the project in partnership with Simon Property Group, the country’s largest operator of malls and one of the largest real estate companies in the world. Simon’s Leesburg outlets include more than 120 stores, including Burberry, Coach, J. Crew, Nike and Vera Bradley.
