First tenants announced for Freeport's Village Station

Quoted from the press release:

Berenson Associates, Inc., developer of Freeport Village Station, Freeport’s newest retail development, is kicking off its leasing program with a group of four retailers who are the first tenants to sign leases with this lifestyle center style complex.
Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation has entered into leases for four of its premier outlet stores – Calvin Klein, IZOD, Van Heusen and Geoffrey Beene. They are the first retailers to sign with Freeport Village Station.
The 120,000 square foot multi-level complex, at the corner of Main and Mill Streets in the shopping mecca’s downtown, is expected to include between 30 and 40 retail factory outlet stores and restaurants, two elevators providing handicapped accessibility, a 550 car parking garage, and other public amenities.

...The new development will bring a state-of-the-art shopping experience while maintaining the Town’s character. Preparation at the 3.6 acre site is underway. The former L.L.Bean factory store has been demolished. Site work is expected to begin in November and construction will follow immediately thereafter.

...The project is expected to open in the spring of 2009. A portion of the parking garage is expected to be open in late 2008.

More exciting development in downtown Freeport! The parking garage is expected to be free and some of the new development project is expected to be one or more restaurants.
