Skyline Mall was a small enclosed shopping mall located among the high rises of Bailey's Crossroads in Falls Church, Virginia. It opened on the site of a the former Washington-Virginia Airport and the Sunset X-rated drive-in theater.[1] in 1977 to join the offices of Skyline City. At its peak, the mall comprised more than thirty tenants, including a Safeway supermarket and Rite Aid drugstore, and a twelve-screen cinema. Other major chain tenants that formerly operated at the mall included Dress Barn and B. Dalton.[1] The mall was purchased in 2002 by discount retailer Target Corporation, who replaced the majority of the complex (except for a fitness center on the second level[1]) with a Target store.
