They are giving retailers until the end of the holiday season before demolition begins. They are expected to break ground in January. They already started working on the electrical issues (power lines were re-routed beneath ground this summer). So, yes, this is moving forward but demo will begin in winter.

No future meetings are currently scheduled and construction is supposed to begin this Fall? Well, Fall has already started - what's the next step Hughes Corp? Let us know when to expect the demo!!

This conversation has been going on for 9 years.I am a tenant of Landmark Mall and this is most ridiculous thing I have witnessed in my life.I will believe when I see.

Please consider adding an electric car charging station at Landmark, such as the Tesla supercharging station which can run on solar power. So many residential units have no access to recharging their vehicles. This could increase business at Landmark while people are recharging their vehicles, and encourage use of renewable fuel transport.

Thrilled about redevelopment! This area has so much potential. I am in full support and like the ideas that includes offering lots of cultural restaurant offerings. Also strongly encourage boutiques and shopping to make it a a go to Hot spot. I have seen this concept in other cities and loved the middle areas of greenery and fountains where families and friends can gather. So happy to see this project moving forward.

I imagine something similar to the Mosaic district but I agree that an international/cultural theme will capitalize on the richness of the community. I also think maybe a small indie theater, a MOMs or Trader Joes would be great, as well as some DC faves like Julia's Empanadas and other small independent restaurants and stores that are successful in the district.

I think it would be great to invest in a great mall/retail area and include public transportation in the plans. The DC area is growing exponentially and this is a great space to expand access to products and services.

It is time for this dead space to be revitalized! Anything at this point will be better than what's already there. >$1 million homes have sold within 2 miles of this location. The potential is there and the DC market in general continues to grow in all directions and there is no space left in Arlington or NW DC. This area has enormous potential and cannot go to waste - strategically located 10 mins from Old Town and 15-20 mins from DC. I like the redevelopment plans but we need to be even more ambitious than that. Eventually there needs to be a plan for a train system to get there from DC. ALL IN folks. This area of Alexandria needs it

How do you recruit retail stores to this location. I want a Soma Intimates store at this location.

You're all missing the point. The whole idea is to redevelop the mall and community and introduce the yuppy crowd that has made Clarendon and other parts of Northern Virginia boom. If you build it (and do it right), they WILL come. Look at the housing market in Clarendon -- real estate prices are through the roof. Tiny homes near the heart of town are selling for $1 million. This part of Alexandria needs revitalization and a new crowd. Will this result in some of the current residents being pushed into other neighborhoods? Yes. Will the rent and cost of living substantially increase? Yes. But that's the point. A new, young crowd with money to spend in a part of Alexandria 10 minutes from Old Town and 20 minutes to DC.
