The Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets mall in Leesburg has officially gotten a new name — one that probably brings it closer to what we all call it anyway. Henceforth, it will be known simply as thee Leesburg Premium Outlets. No more “corner” in the name.

Simon, the huge shopping center company that owns the Outlets, made the announcement Monday and when we passed by today (Tuesday), crews were hard at work changing the signage around the center.

The new name is part of a major refresh the mall has been getting over the past year or so. Improvements include:

  • a new Food Hall with a stylish dining room and updated bathrooms
  • new walkways
  • new outdoor seating
  • a fire pit and other gathering areas
  • an interactive green space
  • an upgraded children’s play area
  • free public WiFi
  • digital directories
  • refreshed landscaping

The project to upgrade the center is scheduled to wrap up by the summer of 2020.
