As a condition of the site plan for this project, the developer will implement improvements to the streetscape surrounding the Landmark building.

These improvements include:

  • Pedestrian promenade along N. Uhle Street between the Courthouse Metro station and Landmark Block
  • A new sidewalk and streetscape improvements along Clarendon Boulevard, Wilson Boulevard, and N. Courthouse Road

  • Sidewalk closures and temporary walkways
  • Lane closures or narrowing
  • Bus, vehicle, and bike travel possibly sharing lanes where space is reduced
