City Receives Landmark Mall Redevelopment Plans
Howard Hughes Corp. submits plans, but mall owner and City of Alexandria officials are quiet on details.
Landmark Mall owner Howard Hughes Corp. has submitted plans to redevelop part of Landmark Mall, but officials with the city of Alexandria and the Howard Hughes Corp. are keeping mum on specifics.
“The Howard Hughes Corp. has made a redevelopment submission, and the City is reviewing the submission for completeness,” said city spokesman Tony Castrilli in a statement. “We are seeking to schedule a community meeting for early April, so the Howard Hughes Corp. can present their plan.”
Landmark Mall is located in Alexandria and is another shopping option for those who frequented Springfield Mall, which is now being renovated to become the new and improved Springfield Town Center.
Howard Hughes spokeswoman Caryn Statman Kboudi released the following statement:
“In conjunction with Sears and Macy’s, we continue to explore the feasibility of a redevelopment of Landmark Mall for a possible mixed use project that would include retail, restaurant and a residential component. We are currently processing though the city a submittal of plans as they ensure we have all the necessary documentation.
“We will also be engaging the community in a dialogue about the project beginning in early April. As more details regarding the dialogue are available, we will be sure to keep everyone informed.”

Howard Hughes, Sears and Macy’s each own about a third of the mall property.
In February, Karl Moritz, the city’s deputy director of planning and zoning, said Howard Hughes had floated the idea of building a “restaurant row” in the spot that currently serves as the mall’s front entrance, with residential space above the restaurants.
Mayor Bill Euille has said Sears has been holding up redevelopment plans.
