Construction of ‘Outlets of Des Moines’ Mall Begins Soon
ALTOONA, Iowa -- Construction of the metro’s first outlet shopping center is set to begin this month. Boston-based New England Development announced Tuesday that the Outlets of Des Moines property in Altoona is set to open in October 2017. The developer first announced plans for the outlet mall in 2014 and hoped to open in the fall of 2016, but factors such as city approval and lining up tenants delayed the process.
