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.
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.

Get started and hurry up. We approve. GO. Anything would be better than the lousy stores and bad traffic patterns of today. The most frustrating this about this project has been the 6-10 year wait.

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.
