ALTOONA, Iowa – A proposed shopping and entertainment center in Altoona is growing.

This week, crews began ground work on an outlet mall, which was the first phase of the Prairie Crossing project.

Developers also announced a $200 million build out to the project that will include single and multi-family housing. The construction on that portion of the project won't begin for at least another five years.

However, the outlet mall is expected to open next year.

Developers say the entire project will take about 15 years to complete.
