Alexandria, Va. — The Howard Hughes Corp. has purchased a Macy’s store and parking field at Landmark Mall in Alexandria for an undisclosed price.
The Macy’s at Landmark Mall is one of 68 stores announced to be closing by Macy’s last week. The company plans to transform the enclosed mall and the Macy’s parcel into an open-air, mixed-use community with retail, residential and entertainment components.
The new Landmark will feature multiple plazas and green spaces, outdoor seating, an updated transit center, seasonal entertainment, public art, numerous full-service and fast-casual dining options and an upscale movie theater. The Howard Hughes Corp. is planning to close the interior portion of Landmark Mall at the end of January. A definitive timeline for the redevelopment has not been finalized.
