Planning Area

The Beauregard Corridor Planning Area (BCPA) is a combination of portions of the Alexandria West Small Area and the Seminary Hill Small Area, both of which are part of the citywide Master Plan that was updated and adopted by the City of Alexandria in 1992 (see the redline area on the map below).

Most of the Beauregard Corridor Planning Area is part of the Alexandria West Small Area (the pink portion within the redline).  Specifically, it is the portion of the Alexandria West Small Area that is west of I-395 along Beauregard Street from Holmes Run to Seminary Road, including parcels fronting on Beauregard and those parcels between Beauregard Street and I-395; the Southern Towers property on the north side of Seminary Road; and a group of parcels north of Seminary Road from Fairbanks Street to Beauregard Street.  This portion of the Beauregard Corridor Planning Area also contains the Winkler Botanical Preserve, the Mark Center Hilton Hotel, and the BRAC-133 site, none of which are anticipated to be altered by this planning effort.

A small piece of the Beauregard Corridor Planning Area is also part of the Seminary Hill Small Area east of I-395 (the green portion within the redline).  Specifically, it is (a) the portion of the Seminary Hill Small Area that is along Kenmore Avenue on the north side of Seminary Road at I-395 that includes the shopping center, offices and hotel; and (b) the Seminary Towers and Seminary Hills Apartments on the south side of Seminary Road.  This portion of the Beauregard Corridor Planning Area contains the building that formerly housed the Steak and Ale Restaurant. 

The Beauregard Corridor Planning Area also includes a portion of the Van Dorn/Beauregard Transit Corridor that is proposed to be the location of high-capacity transit as indicated in the Transportation Master Plan adopted by the City in September 2008.
