The City of Alexandria Planning Commission will hold its next regular monthly public hearing on Tuesday, June 2, 2015 at 7:00 PM in City Hall Council Chambers, located at 301 King Street in Alexandria, Virginia. Docket items can be found at this link.

One of the items up for consideration is an extension of development time for a ‘new’ office building project in Eisenhower East at 2200 Mill Road. As readers will remember, this project was part of the Eisenhower Gateway project before the economic climate for new office development took a downturn in Alexandria. This project will consist of two 15-story office buildings totaling 585,000 square feet and 737 parking spaces, the bulk of which are in a below-grade parking garage.

The project has since been sold and the developer is looking to gain approval for  an extension to the date of expiration of a previously approved Development Special Use Permit (DSUP #2012-0003) and an amendment to update various conditions to construct a commercial office building including previous SUP approval for increased penthouse height and additional penthouses; and B) an extension to the date of expiration of a previously approved Transportation Management Plan SUP (SUP #2012-0065) and an amendment to update various conditions.

Readers may remember that the developer recently demolished the existing American Truckers Association building, which has been vacant for several years, in order to pave the way for future office development on the site.
