Members of the community are encouraged to provide input on the proposed redevelopment of Landmark Mall. All comments are important and all comments will be read by staff. In preparation for the public hearings before the Planning Commission and City Council, staff will compile all of the comments from this board and provide a written response to each in a single document. Staff will not be responding to each comment as it is posted. The compiled document will be included as an attachment to the staff report to the Planning Commission and City Council.
This comment board is specifically intended to gather feedback related to the Landmark Mall redevelopment proposal. Other comments or questions should be directed to the City’s Call.Click.Connect. system.
Somebody on that council is getting paid off to drag this redevelopment on forever... I'm betting that the local car dealers want to keep the parking lot there forever as a storage site for their excess vehicles.

Shame on the bureaucracy of feet dragging on the redevelopment of Landkark Mall. They built the Pyramids thousands of years ago in less time than it took to rebuild a mall. Shamefull! I hope I live long enough to see it.

I am in favor of mixed use with an emphasis on business. Having said that we need to get going. The city, business owners and employees are losing money because people would rather shop at a first world mall. Landmark is a disgrace. It might be the most lifeless mall in the Washington Metropolitan area.

Wow, how many times are they going to keep pushing this one back? When built it better be the grandest thing ever built in the DC Metro area, the First Lady and President should want to frequent it. Maybe even Prince William and his family shall want to come here...I think molasses moves faster than the Alexandria Board, such high taxes relative and nothing to show on the west end yet.

We live in winter in Cameron Station. It would be wonderful to rebuild something attractive where that sad eyesore is now. Someone in comments mentioned the concrete-filled access. The site as an attractive view with green space continuing the Holmes Run-Dora Kelly parks and easy entrances and pedestrian-friendly bridges and walkways should be required. We often see some poor soul trying to cross Duke Street on foot or bike and wonder how they'll make it. And now, automobile entrance is a puzzle.Any successful requires easy and free parking. This means water run-off. Here in lowlands of Cameron Station, with tbe pond across the street, we hope the City will require the latest technology fordrainage and water/garbage management. So close to the Potomac--think of the poor birds and animals we see here trying to swim tbrough plastic bags and other garbage.

Site Plan Amendment February 2015: The Howard Hughes Corporation submitted an amendment to their approved Development Site Plan (DSUP) to increase the amount of residential and commercial floor area on the Landmark Mall site. While the floor area would increase with this amendment, the residential unit count remains capped at 400 units per the approved plan. The application is currently under review by City Staff, and additional information will be provided as the review progresses.

The Mayor for the City of Alexandria indicated that 6/2014 was the start date for the Re-Development project at Landmark Mall. This is 8 months later and not a single bull dozer or port-a-potty on site. What is going on with this redevelopment? A resident of Watergate at Landmark asked the General Manager of Landmark Mall about the details and was told that approval to demolish had been given, but that no approval to re-build was given. For 15 years we have been told nothing but false statements giving hope that this Mall would be re-built. We see nothing. We hear of meetings, we are given false hopes. This honestly must stop. Truthful statements need to be given from the City officials to the residents of the West End.

Please give us SOMETHING. This is our neighborhood, our lives. Zero information is just unacceptable.
