The site of the 51.5 acre former Landmark Mall in Alexandria, VA will see construction start on a major redevelopment in 2024.
The project has been in planning stages since late 2020. When complete, the site will be anchored by a a $1 billion Inova Health System hospital campus.
Landmark Land Holdings, a joint venture among Foulger-Pratt, The Howard Hughes Corporation and Seritage Growth Properties, has received entitlement approval for the first four buildings to be constructed at the rechristened WestEnd Alexandria, Commercial Observer (CO) has reported.
There will also be residential, retail, commercial and entertainment uses and feature a central plaza, parks and public spaces, and a transit hub. As well, the Alexandria Fire Department Station 208 will relocate to the community.
The first four buildings include three residential structures with 1,117 new residential units, 45 of which are affordable; a new office tower that will offer approximately 120,000 sq. ft. of office space; and more than 250,000 sq. ft. of retail.
“We are grateful to be advancing this remarkable vision,” James Kelly, vice-president of development at Foulger-Pratt, said in a prepared statement. “This project will be a catalyst for redevelopment throughout the West End of Alexandria.”
