The public is invited to an open house Feb. 11 to learn about the mixed-use redevelopment plans for the Beauregard corridor.
Representatives of the property owners will be on hand to explain their projects and answer questions. The event takes place in a white tent in the parking lot at the Shops at Mark Center, 1452-1480 North Beauregard St., Alexandria, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
The plan outlines urbanization in the West End of Alexandria over the next 20 to 30 years, an area already seeing the impact of the BRAC-133 complex at the Mark Center. In addition to new multifamily housing, office buildings, hotels, and stores, the plans includes community amenities, such as parks, a new fire station, athletic fields, and transportation improvements.
The public is also invited to a community meeting to discuss the working draft of the Beauregard Small Area Plan, Feb. 21, 7 p.m., at John Adams Elementary School media center, 5651 Rayburn Ave., Alexandria.
