The redevelopment is being held up by Sears and Macy's. Their leases effectively give them a stranglehold on the project. They want to be paid to go away.

I would say shop elsewhere but no one shops at either one so...

The politicians in Alexandria VA have to be one of the worse in the USA. Always see new building in the Old Town area but they have been talking about this Landmark Mall redevelopment for over 10 years. The new mayor sucks.

Does anyone know what is holding this project up? As a resident, I would love to see restaurants I could walk to, besides Shooters and the Indian place in Cameron Station. If they can make this place walkable, it would be so busy! I heard a rumor that Macy's and Sears are holding out for concessions. Echoing other posters, those stores are empty and sort of creepy... Please, Sears and Macy's, it is in your best interest as well to help this area grow and develop!

Of course they will be closing this Macy's store and I'm assuming that Sears will follow. I went to Sears a few weeks ago, while changing oil at the Sears Auto Service. It's creepy and scary in there.. Both stores definitely have a negative cash flow. So what's next? Will the mall be resold again, along with Sears and Macy's shares?

Seriously folks - This place continues to amaze. I was just there today just to see what has changed and now the 3 floor food court is blocked off since there are no more eateries. The place appears to be about 85% vacant. I read that Macy's is going to close 100 stores. Is the Landmark location going to be one of them?

When will construction start to renovate the Landmark Mall?

Curious to know why it is still in the proposed stages? Who is the plan being proposed to? What are the steps that need to be taken for it to be approved?

I see that a similar development (at a much smaller scale) has been built at the corner of Van Dorn St and South Pickett st. Could be a hope that Landmark Mall is soon to follow.

I bought in the area a year ago and would love to not have to drive to Springfield or Tysons to go to the mall.
From the comments I have read it seems that the idea has in the "proposed" stages for about 10 years. That is unfortunate if true. You either are going to do it or not.

I also agree with a comment made regarding other retail buildings in the area that are left dormant after the business leaves, like the former fudruckers off of Duke St.

I hope that we moved from proposed to approved soon.

The mall needs a new face. I don't agree with building residential buildings. Traffic is already horrid in the area.
