Foulger-Pratt, Inova Health System, City of Alexandria are hosting a virtual meeting tonight (Monday) from 7-8:30 pm. to discuss plans for the joint four million-square-foot project that will include a new medical campus at the former Landmark Mall. Plans call for a project that would revitalize the West End with a “new mixed-use, walkable urban village.”
Mayor Justin Wilson said in his January newsletter that the redevelopment will bring a billion dollars in new investments to the region.
“Despite over two decades of decline, it is not a mystery why we had been unable to spur redevelopment on this site in the past,” Wilson wrote. “It is a complicated site, with a complicated ownership structure requiring significant infrastructure investment.”
“Inova would create a new medical campus, anchored by a relocated and expanded Alexandria Hospital,” the City of Alexandria said in a press release. “The site would include residential, retail, commercial and entertainment offerings integrated into a cohesive neighborhood with a central plaza, a network of parks and public spaces, a new fire-EMS station, and a transit hub serving bus rapid transit, DASH, and Metrobus.”
