Despite concerns that its proposed design still needs a great deal of work, plans to knock down and rebuild Tanger Outlet Center 1 on U.S. 278 are moving on to Beaufort County Council.

Six members of the council’s Land Management Committee voted Monday night to recommend a requested zoning change for the 20-year-old outlet mall to the full council. The committee’s seventh member, Steven Baer, was not at the meeting.

Tanger requested the zoning change on its 25-acre parcel in greater Bluffton to allow it more flexibility when the outlet mall is knocked down in phases and rebuilt.

Tanger 1 originally was built in 1988, before the 1994 adoption of county architectural, landscaping and sign standards.

Tanger Outlet Centers wants to retain some of the current features that don’t meet county requirements, among them those dealing with the number and size of trees and the property’s buffer, the space between the mall and the roadway.

But the mall won’t get everything it’s asking for.
