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.
Despite what BobK has said, I sent an email to the Howard Hughes Corp. requesting an update on the reconstruction plans.

Update: the project was cancelled 8 weeks ago. The rumor is that Hughes could not secure funding and work out a favorable tax rebate with Alexandria. Oh well, was nice to even think about Landmark coming down.

Isn't there at least one City Council member that is actively working with Hughes to ensure that progress is being made on this very important project? While progress may be happening behind the scenes, it is not at all transparent to the community! Overall communication has been very poor. Is anyone responsible for creating and exexuting an overall project Communications Plan that includes periodic updates to the community? The silence on this project just causes anxiety and frustration for the residents. I, for one, am beginning to doubt this project is really ever going to happen.

Can we please have a status update? It has been months since the City Council approved the site plans. I do not think our town government is doing enough to get this project moving.

I wish they could include a commuter parking lot in the new development.https://tokosanjaya.com/

I love living in a culturally and economically diverse area. "Landmark will be a vibrant hub for the highly affluent, well-educated Alexandria consumer."Before I can even get excited for new shops & services in my area, and not needing to drive to DC for a social life, how is the highly affluent 37% single household population THE target market for an area that is heavily populated by 63% of FAMILIES with varying means???? I am within that target but I don't believe we should focus this development on single affluent professionals like every other development within the beltway. 30 year olds grow up and have babies too. Look at Pentagon Row. Now that they have transformed into a more family friendly community gathering place, it is becoming a vibrant place to live, work, play and just be at all hours of the day and night. West End needs a space to serve as that third place where babies and elderly and teenagers can gather next to those affluent professionals and just be. Ben Breman is a great park but Landmark is going to be our town center for the West End. Let's focus on all ages and economic levels please. And I agree with the notion of having a transportation hub (not just commuter options). Metro is so inaccessible and impractical for West End residents living near 395. Please no flashy billboards like Gallery Place. That's an eyesore.

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
