Simon Property Group's Fashion Centre at Pentagon City will undergo a reboot that will include the addition of 50,000 square feet and two new levels of retail and restaurants.
Arlington County approved the expansion in November. Simon Property Wednesday confirmed expansion details and said work would "begin soon."
The two-story addition will create a new entrance along South Hayes Street and will include restaurants with outdoor seating. Fashion Centre said it would announce new retailers and restaurants shortly.
The mall's interior will also get a facelift, including new elevators and escalators, a complete interior common area renovation, including new flooring, handrails, signage and restroom updates.
The food court will also be expanded and redesigned.
Fashion Centre at Pentagon City opened in 1989. It currently has about 170 retailers, including anchors Nordstrom and Macy's.
