Nan's Notes

2013-06  Howard Hughes Corporation—one of the three owners of Landmark Mall—applied to redevelop one-third of the Landmark Mall into an urban village by demolishing the central portion replacing it with residential and retail.  Sears and Macy’s—the other owners—will remain.  The parking structure would be redesigned.  Howard Hughes plans to make $4 million in contributions to the City in lieu of providing affordable housing on site and transit way improvements.

2013-05  Howard Hughes Corporation held two public meetings about its plans to redevelop a part of the Mall into a restaurant row with residences above.

2013-04-02 Planning Commission will consider changing the zoning in the Landmark/Van Dorn Plan—34A, 36 and 100 South Reynolds Street that is now a hotel—from Medium/High Residential CG/Commercial—to only residential—RC/High Density Apartment with a parking deck. Note this is the second request for a change to the City’s approved plan to build more residential and parking where the Plan had approved “smart growth” and “mixed use projects” that would have residential, retail, and commercial together thus reducing traffic and sharing garages. So much for plans!

2013-03 City received plans from the Howard Hughes Corporation—one of the three owners of Landmark Mall—to redevelop part of the Mall into a restaurant row, which Mayor Euille likely does not support.
