NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Construction is underway for a new outlet mall in Norfolk.

Media outlets report that a groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday at the site of the Norfolk Premium Outlets.

The 85-store shopping center is expected to open in the summer of 2017.

Simon Property Group, which is developing the property, says the 332,000 square foot mall will create a mix of 800 full- and part-time jobs when it opens.

Officials have not said which stores will be coming to the mall.

The mall is expected to bring in more than $3 million in tax revenue to Norfolk.
