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.
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.

Interesting. Landmark Mall is in a video about dead malls (listed at the end). Apparently there are people that like to visit dying malls. Perhaps the Alexandria City government should consider marketing this-along with the awesome carnival-to bring some revenue into the long neglected West End. Watching this video, I feel like the narrator is talking about a mall in a dying city in the middle of the rust belt. How did it get to this? It’s inside the beltway, less than a minute from 395. .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UK-MrUb3eZw

Cameron Station is the beacon of hope in the west end. The new development on South Pickett St, Modera Tempo, and the Landmark Mall redevelopment are all God sends to this area. My wife and I cannot wait to see Howard Hughes demolish Landmark and keep the progress moving.

First of all, I disagree with Ben. Landmark area is not only populated by low-income families, especially considering Cameron Station and new buildings being built around. Second, this Comment Board and the Hughes Corporation website with pretty pictures of the renovation plans, are both very nice, but they are created to shut people up. I think what we really need to do is to gather a few thousands of residents and march to City Hall to send a clear message and to show real interest in the neighborhood. Enough is enough.
