Freeport Village Station
Leasing Contact: Al Yebba at 617.248.4247
Freeport Village Station, Freeport’s newest retail development and only lifestyle center, is an approximately 120,000 square foot state-of-the-art
multi-level complex on a 3.6 acre site in the shopping mecca’s downtown. The site is particularly prominent given its location across from L.L. Bean’s famous flagship store on Main Street. L.L. Bean held a lengthy and extensive competition and selected Berenson Associates to develop the project from a field of approximately 10 developers. We are honored to have been chosen by L.L. Bean to develop such an exciting project in their hometown and believe our experience and integrity were as important as our development plan and concepts in winning the opportunity.
Set to open in spring 2009, Freeport Village Station will feature approximately 40 retail factory outlet stores, restaurants, three elevators providing handicapped accessibility, a 550 car parking garage (the only covered parking in Freeport), and other public amenities.
Berenson Associates kicked off its leasing program with the signing of the Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation for four of its premier outlet stores – Calvin Klein, IZOD, Van Heusen and Geoffrey Beene. Forbes magazine named Phillips-Van Heusen to its "Best of the Best" list for 2006, cited for performance, leadership, innovation and execution. Berenson Associates will announce many more signed tenants in the coming weeks.
Over three million people visit Freeport each year, drawn primarily by the shopping and the great outdoors. Many national retailers have stores in Freeport, and the Town has become a destination for both full-price and outlet shopping. Sales per square foot average among the highest in New England.
Freeport Village Station will enhance the already exciting Freeport experience while maintaining the Town’s character. According to Freeport Town Manager, Dale C. Olmstead Jr., “Freeport Village Station will lead a 21st century revitalization in Freeport to ensure that the area not only continues to attract millions of visitors each year, but thrives as a premiere Northeast destination for years to come.”
