Plan for Mixed-Use Development In Eisenhower East (courtesy image)

On Jan. 20, City Council approved a master plan amendment for the Eisenhower East Small Area Plan that will provide support for attributes of proposed development in Hoffman Blocks 4 & 5 of the Plan. The approved Stage I Development Special Use Permit covers the overall mass, scale, uses, and density of the development, which includes three residential towers to be constructed atop a five-story podium building that will contain the retail and parking for the project.

The project attributes include a planned 85,000 square-foot Wegmans grocery store (the first in Alexandria), more than 125,000 additional square feet of retail uses, up to 800 residential units, structured parking, and the provision of a large public plaza. At a subsequent hearing, the City Council will review the architecture of the development for the Stage II portion of the Development Special Use Permit.
