ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

This week saw several longtime topics of discussion around Alexandria get new updates.

Designs emerged for the planned Inova hospital at the former Landmark Mall development. Demolition on the mall started last May and the project is expected to wrap up in 2028. Plans show development coming into place around the former Landmark site over a few phases.

The week also started with — what else — more trouble with the Metro. WMATA had initially announced that Metro trains would be running every 25 minutes, but walked that back later after the safety advisory group Washington Metrorail Safety Commission granted Metro a stay until Jan. 24 to address issues in a safety directive.

The most-read stories this week were:

  1. JUST IN: Duke Street shooting suspect was released from jail last year
  2. New renderings of massive Landmark redevelopment show Inova’s vision for glassy new hospital
  3. Police investigating ‘person of interest’ after man shot near Holmes Run on Sunday night
