There a plan in the works to build 68 single-family attached housing units behind the Heritage Mall shopping center on Heritage Drive in Annandale. The proposal also includes a community center, improved pedestrian connectivity, and improvements to the shopping center parking lot and plaza area.
“This is a real opportunity to make an improvement and provide affordable housing,” Braddock Supervisor John Cook told the BoS. The property is in the Braddock District.
According to Cook, a plan was approved in 2006 to allow mixed-use redevelopment on the site but that project never materialized and is no longer considered feasible. More recently, a gas station next to the 7-Eleven at the rear of the property was demolished. The storefronts next to Hmart were renovated in 2014.
