Future Development

Forest City, the owner/developer/manager of Arlington’s Ballston Common Mall, has announced  multi-faceted plans to redevelop the mall site into a more urban mixed-use center. Proposed redevelopment plans call for updating the existing mall with an enhanced blend of restaurants, entertainment and other contemporary upscale retail options. The addition of a residential component is also being contemplated as a part of the redevelopment plans. The mall’s existing Macy’s full-line department store anchor will continue to be a significant retail attraction of the redeveloped center. Macy’s furniture department will be relocated into the lower level of the main store before the redevelopment of the Furniture Store building begins. The proposed plans, which must be approved by the Arlington County Board, would include demolition of the former furniture store structure in order to redevelop new retail space on three levels.

Forest City Washington is the Mid-Atlantic hub of the Cleveland-based Forest City Enterprises, a major national developer, owner and manager of retail, office and residential properties in 26 states and the District of Columbia. Publicly traded on the NYSE, Forest City currently has $10.6 billion in assets.
