After several years of stops and starts, the redevelopment of Landmark Mall is as uncertain as ever.
City Councilman Canek Aguirre informed the Cameron Station Civic Association on March 7, 2020, that Howard Hughes no longer has any interest in the redevelopment project at Landmark.
The Howard Hughes Corporation, recently sent a message to Alexandria Living Magazine that it has no update on mall redevelopment.
“Sorry, no update for now, but we’ll let you know when we have a good update,” the representative wrote.
Howard Hughes’ plan on making the 51-acre site a mixed-use town center was approved by council back in 2013. Council then approved updates to the city’s master plan last year.
Mayor Justin Wilson recently wrote in his monthly newsletter that “there have been discussions between the City and Howard Hughes about potential public/private partnerships that will help spur the redevelopment, but as Howard Hughes continues with a restructuring, it remains to be seen who will ultimately bring Landmark through redevelopment.”
Landmark Mall is closed except for Carpenter’s Shelter , the Sears department store and two auto service centers, although Carpenter’s Shelter will be leaving its home at the Macy’s Department store sometime between July 1 and July 15. The mall has seen very little action since the vacant interior shell was used as a set for Wonder Woman 1984.
Wilson remains optimistic.
“Howard Hughes has not announced their intention for the Landmark site, but they have announced that they are reviewing all of their properties,” Wilson told ALXnow. “We are awaiting the conclusion of that process.”
The city released the following video in Nov. 2018:
ALXnow did not receive comments from Howard Hughes or Seritage Growth Properties, which owns the Sears department store.
