In Spring of 2023, Tanger and Up Top Acres partnered to open three rooftop gardens at centers in Maryland, Georgia, and New Jersey. The gardens provide ecological benefits including increased local biodiversity and reduced emissions and heat-island effect. Some rooftop gardens also accommodate habitats for beehives located on the roofs, as well as food for local non-profit partners.

In support of community engagement and biodiversity, we've expanded our Urban Beehive program in partnership with Alvéole. Nine of our US centers are home to an urban beehive, offering beekeeping workshops for both shoppers and employees, and providing virtual updates on the hives’ activities. We plan to continue expanding the program including adding a hive at our new Nashville location when it opens in the Fall of 2023.
Ensuring that our centers maintain environmentally friendly practices is part of our commitment to the planet and to our communities.
