Take a stroll through what today is Ballston Mall and your trip may leave a lot to be desired.  But then take a moment and look west across Wilson Boulevard where you will see new buildings that are home to innovative companies, academic centers, and eateries.  Is this new innovative development a sign of things to come?  Will Ballston be able to revitalize and rebrand itself in order to make itself a desirable place to work, sleep, and play and to compete with other malls and town centers in the region?

 

The Arlington Committee of 100 is honored to have you join us for a conversation about the revitalization efforts in Ballston and how they play into the greater community and economic development efforts for Arlington County.

Tina Leone is the Chief Executive Officer for the Ballston Business Improvement District.  She also serves on the board of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.

John Moore is the Regional Vice President of Operations at Forest City Enterprises and the General Manager for the Ballston mall Property.

Will Voegele is Forest City's Senior Vice President for Commercial Development Responsible for development of retail and mixed-use projects.  He will oversee the Ballston Mall redevelopment efforts with support of John Moore.

Christina Winn is the Director of Business Investment for Arlington Economic Development leading the County’s efforts in business retention, national recruitment, entrepreneur support, and catalyzing the innovation economy.
