Kerri Chambers live in a nearby apartment in Eisenhower East reached out to us and says she runs by the lot daily.
“It doesn’t look good,” Chambers said. “My concern is getting bitten by a snake or some rodent or something.”
Another neighbor who also reached out to us this weekend said he thought he heard a snake rustling in the tall grass walking home from the AMC Hoffman 22 over the weekend. Several other neighbors in the nearby Carlyle area who walk/run by the lot reached out to say the sidewalk area of the lot at Hoffman Town Center has become a heaven for mosquitos.
For decades, the lot was part of the parking at Hoffman Buildings I & II. Now, the lot along Mill Road in Alexandria has been purchased by StonebridgeCarras and is slated for development that includes a Wegmans.
Construction on this lot at Hoffman Town Center is expected to begin in early 2019 with delivery projected in 2021. Along with the 2nd floor Wegmans, the development will have 775,000 square feet of residential space made up of 130 condos, 400 apartments, and 200 senior living units as well as an additional 60,000 Sq Ft for fitness or entertainment purposes.
In the meantime, we have reached out to StonebridgeCarras about maintaining the surface lot area until construction begins.
