The Eisenhower West Small Area Plan envisioned the corridor eventually looking like this


John Wilkinson’s Boundary Cos. has a long, long, long-term plan for Alexandria’s Eisenhower Avenue corridor.

The Chevy Chase-based Boundary Cos. is “in the process of purchasing” 5380 Eisenhower Ave., a 2.35-acre property improved with two buildings totaling 64,645 square feet. The site is roughly two-tenths of a mile east of the Van Dorn Metro station, and three-tenths of a mile west of the still-vacant Victory Center office tower.

Boundary, per its application, “has long-term plans for the redevelopment” of that property. And we mean, way out there. The applicant “anticipates the redevelopment potential of the Property in approximately 15-20 years.”

In the meantime, it is seeking an umbrella special use permit to allow for a variety of tenants in the existing space, from amusements to a church to a restaurant, bottling plant, sheet metal shop, dry cleaning or stone monument works — and 19 other uses.
