Landmark/Van Dorn

Encompassing about 240 acres of retail, office, residential, and industrial properties, the Landmark/Van Dorn Corridor planning area is focused along Van Dorn Street from Landmark Mall to the Van Dorn Metro. The Landmark Small Area Plan, adopted in 2009, establishes a vision for the redevelopment of Landmark Mall and other major parcels surrounding the mall as a lively, mixed-use town center. The owner of the mall, The Howard Hughes Corp., submitted revised redevelopment plans in March 2013 for more than 50 acres in the area of Landmark Mall. The plan for the mall is a mixed-use town center incorporating retail, residential, office, and hotel development, as well as a number of urban parks and places. A new bridge over Duke Street is expected to be included in these plans and will connect the mall to the rest of the town center and other neighborhoods to the south.
