Springfield Town Center Vision
On July 13, 2009, the Board of Supervisors approved a rezoning that permits the redevelopment of the Springfield Mall into a mixed-use Town Center. The redevelopment of the approximately 80 acre site includes the renovation of the 2.1 million square foot Springfield Mall, as well as the addition of residential, office, retail, and hotel uses throughout the site.
The vision for the Springfield Town Center is for a walkable community where people can live, work, shop, and enjoy entertainment and community activities. Interwoven among the retail, offices, hotels, and residences will be a pedestrian oriented network of sidewalks, multi-use pathways, an abundance of open spaces and recreational facilities, including a Central Plaza, dog park, and indoor and outdoor recreations opportunities which will result in a rich environment where the community can gather for concerts, farmer’s markets, events and public exhibits.
Elements of the multi-phased project include a 225+ room hotel, over 2,000 new residential units, several office buildings, additional retail shops along Village Drive; the “Main Street” of the new Springfield Town Center. The development of the Springfield Town Center began in 2012 and has a projected 20 year build-out.
