Call 2013 the year of the shopping mall renaissance in Arlington: The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City is slated to undergo renovations that could include the addition of residences or office space, according to mall owner Simon Property Group.
Just last week, Forest City Washington revealed plans to redevelop Ballston Common Mall.
Simon Property Group spokesman Les Morris did not give any specific information about the Pentagon City mall, but told Washington Business Journal in an interview, “Fashion Centre at Pentagon City is one of our top-performing properties, so obviously it’s part of the mix (of planned renovations).”
The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City was built in 1989 and renovated in 2002.
Elsewhere in the region:
- The Shops at Georgetown Park are undergoing renovations now. That space may include a new bowling alley.
- Springfield Mall in Virginia closed in mid-2012 and will reopen at the end of 2014 with such as retail, restaurants, a fitness center and a movie theater. Later redevelopment phases include condos and office buildings in the surrounding area.
- A redevelopment of Landmark Mall and the surrounding area in Alexandria is still under consideration.
