BREAKING: Landmark Mall to be Redeveloped as Inova Medical Campus

The City of Alexandria announced today that it has reached an agreement with Inova Health System and the Landmark Mall property owners to create a new hospital campus and mixed-use development at Landmark Mall.

The new campus would relocate the existing hospital on Seminary Hill and expand to over 2,000 healthcare workers. Construction could begin as soon as 2023 with the first parts of the campus coming online in 2025.

“The proposed development would revitalize the West End of Alexandria by transforming the unoccupied, enclosed mall site into a mixed-use, walkable urban village,” the city said on its website. “Inova, the leading nonprofit health care provider in Northern Virginia, would invest $1 billion to create a new medical campus, anchored by the relocation and expansion of its Alexandria Hospital and more than 2,000 health care workers.”

The development would also include residential, retail, commercial and entertainment uses in the surrounding area as part of a central plaza — a longtime feature of Landmark Mall redevelopment plans — along with a planned new transit hub.

“Affordable and workforce housing would be enhanced through developer contributions and co-location with community facilities such as a new Alexandria Fire-EMS station,” the city said.

The new plan comes after years of uncertainty about the now-empty mall’s future.

The new plans for Landmark Mall are being planned in tandem with Inova’s plans to open a facility at the planned Oakville Triangle development.

“This plan for the future of the Landmark site is exciting, long-awaited news for our community,” said Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson in the city’s announcement. “The project would be a catalyst for the West End, providing significant benefits for Alexandria and the region at a time when focus on our long-term future is critical.”
