‘Landmark Overlook’ Would Completely Transform 8 Acres Across from Landmark Mall

Big changes are being planned for an 8.2-acre property directly across the street from Landmark Mall.

While only in the conceptual phase, the Landmark Overlook development would transform the corner of South Walker Street and Stephenson Avenue into a mixed use property with hotels or office buildings, two-level stacked condominium units, apartments and retail.

The Eisenhower West-Landmark Van Dorn Implementation Advisory Group was briefed on the plan last week by property owner Hekemian & Co.

“We’re excited about it,” Hekemian’s attorney Ken Wire told the advisory group in a Zoom meeting. “We think the commercial high visibility, the multifamily rental and the stacked condos are a good variety that continues to provide that texture in our community that we all value.”

The property is currently home to the Alley Cat Restaurant and Sports Bar, Dunya Banquet Hall & Restaurant (there since 1989), a four-story office building and a Big Lots store.

The northern edge of the property would be home to two hotels or office buildings depending on demand. The stacked condos in the western portion of the property would have up to 88 two-level units.

“It’s a wonderful site, and we’re obviously looking forward to a redevelopment proposal for it,” Chris Bell, a senior vice president with Hekemian, told the advisory group. “We’re also looking forward to see what happens to the Landmark Mall. We think it’s a real great driver for this site.”

In April, mall owner The Howard Hughes Corporation sent a message to Alexandria Living Magazine that it has no update on its redevelopment.
