The Howard Hughes Corporation, which owns the central section of the Landmark Mall site, has submitted plans to the City of Alexandria for redevelopment of the portion of Landmark Mall between the existing Sears and Macy’s stores.  Landmark Mall is located at 5801 Duke Street.

The proposal calls for 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. This application calls for approximately 250,000 to 300,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, along with approximately 350 to 400 apartments.

Howard Hughes Corporation has been working in conjunction with adjoining property owners, Sears and Macy’s, to explore the feasibility of a redevelopment of Landmark Mall for a possible mixed-use project that would include retail, restaurants and a residential component. There have been conversations with City staff to ensure any proposed redevelopment will be consistent with the 2008 Landmark/Van Dorn Corridor Plan. Howard Hughes Corporation has submitted a formal application to begin a regulatory review.

The Howard Hughes Corporation owns, manages and develops commercial, residential and mixed-use real estate throughout the country. The company owns a number of significant and successful retail properties, including South Street Seaport (Manhattan, NY), various properties in Columbia Town Center (Columbia, MD), Riverwalk Marketplace (New Orleans, LA), Rio West Mall (Gallup, NM), Cottonwood Square (Holladay, UT), Park West (Peoria, AZ) and Ward Centers (Honolulu, HI).
