October 23, 2008 - The Arches at Deer Park, Tangerâs latest New York outlet center, celebrated its grand opening on October 23, 2008. The LEED Certified center, constructed by Aurora Contractors Inc., was completed on time and under budget, posting the highest sales for an opening weekend in Tangerâs history. Thousands of people were on hand for opening weekend, which featured performances by Jordin Sparks and Cheap Trick. The event was covered by national and local news channels and newspapers.
The project, an 84 acre, 805,000 square foot, open-air mall, was inspired by the feel of an old European village. Auroraâs expertise and consummate construction management skills have enabled The Arches to achieve the envisioned goal - providing shoppers with the ambiance of an Italian village, along with much-needed bargains. This center differs from other Tanger Outlet centers in many ways; among them are an open courtyard and fountain that serve as an ice rink in the winter months and a 16-screen multiplex, complete with IMAX. The Arches also features restaurants in addition to the food court, so shoppers can sit and enjoy a leisurely meal.
Given a tight deadline for opening by the developers of the project, Auroraâs construction management team banded together to meet the target date. Their unequaled management and communication skills, coupled with Auroraâs trademark teamwork mentality, enabled the center to open on time.
