There’s a lot going on in Eisenhower East, and more to come.  Join the Eisenhower Partnership at its Annual Meeting to find out the very latest about projects under construction or planned from Rob Kerns, Division Chief in Alexandria’s Planning and Zoning Department.   Mayor Allison Silberberg will kick-off the meeting with a warm welcome.  Later in the meeting, the Eisenhower Partnership will present awards to three individuals who have left their mark on the organization.  Ample networking opportunities accompanied by delicious appetizers and wine/beer/soft drinks round out the program.

The Annual Meeting takes place on Thursday, November 8, from 5:30 to 7:30, at the 6th floor conference room of the AlexRenew headquarters, 1800 Limerick Street.  There is no charge to attend, however, we do ask that you RSVP at www.eisenhowerpartnership.org.

Retail Building Proposed for Hoffman

Town Center Circle

The last remaining parcel on the retail circle at Hoffman Town Center is up for development at 2425 Eisenhower Avenue.  The proposed 7,882 sf building would have a sleek and modern appearance, and while no tenants have been announced yet, we hope there will be a new restaurant.  Public hearings are scheduled for December.  The site is near the movie theaters and existing restaurants.

Eisenhower Partnership Comments on Outfall Construction Program

The comment period recently closed for review of options for construction of remediation to the combined sewer outfalls near Eisenhower Avenue and in Old Town.  The Eisenhower Partnership sent in comments regarding Outfalls 003 and 004 located near Hooff’s Run at Duke Street.  Our comments addressed alternatives for reducing community impact to Carlyle/Eisenhower East, proposed an alternative method to haul waste from construction of tunnels, and expressed concern about the potential traffic burden from concurrent construction projects.  Of particular concern is the proposal to create a construction staging area at Holland Lane.  For a copy of the Eisenhower Partnership letter, please write to eisenhowerppp@gmail.com.

Construction may look like this…

City Council Approval of Short Lease Extension for Cameron Run Park Mirrors EP Comments

After studies, public comment periods, and discussions by the Alexandria Parks Commission, City Council has entered into a short-term extension of the lease of Cameron Run Regional Parks to the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (NoVaParks).  The lease is extended from its current termination date of July 1, 2021 to December 31, 2028, on several conditions: NoVaParks is to create a “winter village” including an ice skating rink, provide swimming lessons during the pool season, enhance the parking lot to accommodate a mini-pitch facility, and employ a full-time maintenance person at the park.  If these conditions are not met, the City reserves the right to terminate the lease on its original expiration date.  In addition, there may be some cooperative activities such as a farmers market or food truck rodeo.  Finally the area of the site under the control of NoVaParks is being reduced to exclude Lake Cook, Lake Cook Park adjacent to the Townes at Cameron Parke, and Ward’s Woods.

The Eisenhower Partnership had strongly advocated for year-round activities in the park, and is pleased with the agreement that was reached.

City to Consider Developer Contributions Policy for Eisenhower West

At the Planning Commission public hearing on November 8 and City Council hearing on November 17, there will be opportunity to comment on a proposed “Developer Contributions Policy” aimed at implementing the Eisenhower West Small Area Plan and Landmark Van Dorn Corridor Plan.  The developer contributions would be aimed at infrastructure improvements, including:

  • Widening the bridge of Van Dorn Street
  • Improvements to Backlick Run Park
  • Straightening Eisenhower Avenue near the Van Dorn Metro Station
  • Building a Multi-modal bridge from Pickett Street to Eisenhower Avenue
  • Building the West End Transitway on Van Dorn Street
  • Building a new road in the vicinity of Farrington Avenue west of Van Dorn Street connecting to Edsall Road.

A two-phased developer contributions rate is proposed to balance market conditions and incentivize redevelopment while considering the need, timing, and cost of infrastructure improvements.  In the short-term, Catalyst Phase, a rate of $3.00 per square foot would apply to the first 3 million square feet of development; the longer-term rate of $7.00 per square foot would apply to later projects that may trigger a need for the multimodal bridge or Van Dorn widening.
