WASHINGTON - Alexandria is considering a massive redevelopment project that could change the face of the city.
Howard Hughes Corporation has submitted plans to demolish and rebuild portion of the Landmark Mall between Sears and Macy's, the city says.
The application calls for up to 300,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, with 350 to 400 apartments. The central area of the mall will also be demolished to make room for a traditional street grid, sidewalks, trees and open space.
There will be a public hearing April 8 at 7 p.m. to discuss the proposal. It will be held at Landmark Mall in the community room on the second level near Bath and Body Works.
