As we told you first, Howard Hughes Corporation has launched a new webpage, which provides updated information on the Landmark Mall Redevelopment, as well as an opportunity for the community to sign up to stay informed about future news and updates.

The first update came out today via email.

Happy New Year!

The Howard Hughes Corporation is excited about 2016, and we believe it will be a significant one for Landmark and the Alexandria community. We’ve been busy meeting with a number of community leaders to educate them on the complexities of redeveloping Landmark Mall and with a number of potential tenants interested in being a part of the new Landmark.

We look forward to continuing these meetings in coming weeks, and to keeping you informed about the Landmark redevelopment as we get closer to bringing to life The Howard Hughes Corporation’s vision for a modern open-air urban village.

Here’s to an exciting new year!

Could it be a sign that progress is moving along in the long-awaited redevelopment of Landmark Mall in Alexandria? Will it be starting in 2016?

The redevelopment of Landmark Mall was approved by City Council in summer 2013. The plan, submitted by Howard Hughes Corporation, calls for the demolition of the two-story central area of the mall and replacement of this portion with a mixed-use residential and retail complex with a traditional street grid, sidewalks, trees, and open space.

In June 2015, City Council approved a Site Plan Amendment, as submitted by the Howard Hughes Corporation, to increase the residential and commercial floor areas by approximately 54,000 square feet.

Question remains – when will redevelopment begin? As we stated previously, we hear from sources Howard Hughes is putting together final financing for the project and redevelopment is likely starting in 2016.
