(Updated 6:20 p.m.) After a few years on backburner, plans to remediate and redevelop Vulcan Materials  — an industrial site near the Van Dorn Metro station — could be reheating.

An application filed by the Lennar Corporation and Potomac Land Group II LLC with the City of Alexandria calls for the remediation of the existing site to create a new mixed-use development. The new project features a hotel facing S. Van Dorn Street, retail, condominiums, townhouses, two-over-two units and a six-acre park along Backlick Run dedicated to the city.

The development would require a rezoning for the site and multiple development special use permits for the various site parcels.

According to the application:

The project will bring several types of housing to the SAP area and will provide many community benefits including the dedication of a 6-acre park, park improvements, and other transportation-related improvements.

A study attached to the application said the hotel would have 256 rooms. The site would have 204 condominiums, 88 back-to-back multifamily units, and 31 townhomes connected on an internal street network.

Permitting for the infrastructure plan and Backlick Park will go to the Planning Commission for review on April 2.
