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.
Landmark Mall is an eyesore, a blight on the West End and a crime magnet. Can we expect an update from the Hughes Corp. anytime soon? The West End of Alexandria is suffering from property devaluation, poor roads and economic failure.

Will this ever happen? What does the Howard Hughes Corp have to gain from dragging this out as opposed to cancelling or doing it?

When will they stop planning and start doing?? West End is being neglected while Old Town and other areas sre going forward. We have been told for at least 10 years or more about this redevelopment plan but nothing happpen. Enough already

The City Council approved the Site Plan Amendment submitted by the Howard Hughes Corporation to increase the residential and commercial floor areas by approximately 54,000 square feet. The additional floor area approved with this amendment will be used for residential amenity areas and additional retail space. The residential unit count will remain unchanged from the approved 370-400 unit range.

Post election now, time for City to get Hughes and Landmark Mall to move along with project. Disgusting how West End is the cash-cow for Old Town.

Landmark would be a terrific place to host the large recreation center that was rejected on Eisenhower Avenue. Plenty of parking, and we could really use a swimming pool nearby.

Please make sure the theater is accessible to deaf people like me. The SONY Access Glasses that are in the Regal movie theaters work great. Also, any dog park should be year-round. Thank you.

Hopefully our new Mayor will help bring in quality retailers to the West End and Landmark Mall. Big lots and the new Aldi on Duke street will/do not attract enough revenue into the area. How long has Fudruckers, MacGruders, Old Pier One, Generous Georges Pizza, and Steak and Ale(Seminary Rd) been closed?

Yup, it's true unfortunately -- the project was cancelled months ago! Not sure why they even leave this messageboard up for people to complain. The plans will be deferred and deferred until people stop asking questions.

I think the other comments are correct in saying that this thing has been canceled. A Mayor election is coming up and the primaries are happening soon, time to vote Euillle out people. It really bothers me to see that all the money I spend on taxes are going towards the more affluent Old Town, just drive on Duke going east and you will see all the high-rises that are sprouting. George would be disgraced of what the city that he founded has become on the West Side.
