Neighborhood Spotlight is a recurring column covering both the City of Alexandria and Alexandria in Fairfax County. This monthly column is sponsored and written by the Seward Group of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
The West End of Alexandria, the city’s largest neighborhood, is transforming at a rapidly evolving pace.
This highly residential neighborhood is undergoing several major revitalization efforts that will bring a new commercial and health hub to the heart of the West End, anchoring a new era.
Bordering both Fairfax and Arlington, the West End includes the Beauregard, Landmark and Van Dorn neighborhoods, along with other smaller communities. Along with playing a major role in the future of the City of Alexandria, the West End has deep historical roots in Fort Ward, a park and historical landmark built in 1861 to protect Washington during the Civil War. Today, Fort Ward hosts an active community of walkers, bikers, children and even schools on its spacious grounds.
It’s impossible to talk about the West End of the City of Alexandria without the new, forthcoming commercial and residential hub at the former Landmark Mall site. The Landmark Mall, once a thriving marketplace, has fallen into disuse over many years, and its only recent claim to fame was having part of “Wonder Woman 1984” filmed onsite.
Soon, this site will be the home of a much more modern town center. An Inova medical campus will be a linchpin of the development, creating more than 2,000 healthcare jobs and relocating the Inova Alexandria Hospital from its current location on Seminary Road. Construction will begin in 2023 and new buildings could be completed as soon as 2025.
With this new development, the West End will be an even more desirable place to live in the City of Alexandria. Breweries like Port City and Aslin are already making their mark, and new innovations like eLofts, a live/work concept occupying a former defense contractor building are popping up.
