Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, also known as Pentagon City Mall, is a shopping mall in Arlington, Virginia. It is situated in the Pentagon City neighborhood near Interstate 395 and Hayes Street. The mall takes its logo from the architectural design of Washington Tower. Its Metro level is directly connected to the Pentagon City station on the Blue and Yellow Lines of the Washington Metro.

Completed in October 1989, the Fashion Centre is the largest enclosed shopping mall in Arlington, housing 164 retailers and restaurants. It is anchored by department stores Macy's and Nordstrom, and is directly connected to the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City hotel.

History[edit]

The mall was originally planned to be anchored by Bamberger's.[1] A portion of Fashion Centre is at the lower levels of Washington Tower office building, the former home of MCI's Consumer Markets headquarters.

It was built by Melvin Simon & Associates, which sold the bulk of its interest in 1991 to a series of institutional investors, while retaining a quarter interest and management of the center. Simon Property Group, the successor to the Simon shopping mall interests, raised its stake and now jointly owns the center with CalPERS.
