An add-on tax to commercial real estate in Alexandria would be substantially detrimental to businesses in the community. Businesses in the West End are already suffering and an additional tax would on those that own real estate might just be the straw that breaks the camel's back. I have heard that Macy's and Sears own the land at Landmark Mall. It seems as though those stores are already suffering since mall traffic is virtually non-existent. I could not imagine what would happen to the Landmark area if those stores pulled out.
