Changes are coming to one of Loudoun’s most popular shopping destinations, not to mention one of its biggest tourist draws.
Simon Centers announced Wednesday that its Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets will undergo extensive renovations beginning early this year. The intent of the renovations is to enhance the shopping experience for visitors to the outlets, according to a press release announcing the renovation plans.
Enhancements will include a reimagined food pavilion, redesigned courtyards, renovated restrooms, an upgraded children’s play area, free public WiFi, digital directories, and refreshed signage throughout the property.
The center’s food pavilion will receive new communal, farm-style dining tables, stylish banquette seating and comfortable lounge areas. Gathering spots outside the food pavilion will feature new tables and chairs with umbrellas, as well as updated landscaping, seasonal planting beds and a wall trellis with climbing vines. A brand new guest services desk will also be introduced to better serve shoppers.
An integral part of the renovation work includes appointed areas for shoppers and families to relax and recharge. Lounge seating, an outdoor fire pit, courtyard seating clusters, interactive green space with outdoor, life-size games, vending alcoves and updated landscaping will all play a role in creating entertaining and inviting areas for guests.
Other improvements include a complete renovation of the center’s restrooms, as well as the addition of a private nursing lounge for new mothers.
Finally, the children’s play area will be relocated near Old Navy and will feature a host of new climbing structures designed to spark imagination and encourage exploration and exercise.
“We are continually seeking ways to evolve and meet the needs of our guests,” stated Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets Manager Jim Gonzales. “This renovation project will further strengthen the center’s stronghold as the region’s premier outlet shopping destination, complementing the sought-after brands and value our visitors expect.”
All stores will remain open throughout the renovation.
