Landmark Van Dorn Planning

The Landmark/Van Dorn Corridor Plan, approved by the City Council in 2009, envisions a redeveloped Landmark Mall into a vibrant, urban town center. Ensuring realization of this vision required an update to the 2009 Plan through the Landmark Mall Re-Planning Process. This page provides information and materials related to the planning process, as well as links to the 2009 Landmark/Van Dorn Corridor Plan and the Eisenhower West – Landmark Van Dorn Advisory Group

Background on Landmark Mall Re-Planning Process

After lengthy delays as a result of changes to the Landmark Mall sites' ownership structure, changes in department store ownership and economics and the overall real estate market, in 2018 The Howard Hughes Corporation, partial owner of the Landmark Mall site since 2010, indicated their readiness to move forward with redevelopment, which required an update to the Landmark Mall framework plan and Landmark/Van Dorn Corridor Plan (2009). City Council approved this effort as a priority in the  FY 2019 Long-Range Planning Work Program. The Ad Hoc Eisenhower West/Landmark Van Dorn Implementation Advisory Group served as the community forum for the duration of the Landmark Mall re-planning process.

Meetings and Events

2009 Landmark/Van Dorn Corridor Plan

On June 13, 2009, City Council unanimously adopted Ordinance 4598 incorporating the Landmark/Van Dorn Corridor Plan into the City's Master Plan as an amendment to the Landmark/Van Dorn Small Area Plan. Meeting and background information can be found on the 2009 Landmark/Van Dorn Corridor Plan Archives page.

Eisenhower West / Landmark Van Dorn Implementation

The 2009 Landmark Van Dorn Corridor Plan and the 2015 Eisenhower West Small Area Plan both recommend establishment of an advisory group to provide guidance on implementation. Since the two plan areas overlap and share dependency on planned infrastructure, looking at the phasing and funding of both plans in concert will provide necessary coordination. This page provides information on these implementation efforts.
