NSF, TSA, and Zell featured in Washington Business Journal event at Victory Center

Carlyle Plaza Two tower

The Washington Business Journal focused on Alexandria in its “On the Road” series June 23.  A panel including Stephanie Landrum (Alexandria Economic Development Partnership), John Taylor Chapman (Alexandria City Council) and Jeff Zell (JM Zell Partners) discussed some of the new projects on Eisenhower Avenue.  With regard to the National Science Foundation (NSF), Councilman John Chapman noted that the City Council wants to be competitive when it comes to landing projects that could be catalysts to neighborhood redevelopment.  NSF will move in to its new building in late summer 2017.  Stephanie Landrum was optimistic that Alexandria will win the rebid for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).  She also mentioned a number of investors who are buying portions of the Hoffman family holdings: USAA, Lowe, Perseus, Rubinstein, and Wright Investment are some of the names cited.  Jeff Zell focused on his belief that the Carlyle Plaza Two site near Holland Lane warranted an iconic landmark building with architecture that is distinctive amidst Alexandria’s trademark brick buildings.  Overall, the climate for redevelopment of Eisenhower Avenue is very positive, and new investment is poised to create a new dynamism along the Avenue.
