A planned senior care facility called The Landing in Potomac Yard is returning to the city for approval of some changes to reflect new city guidelines.
Silverstone Healthcare Co. is applying to the City of Alexandria to increase the size of a project at 2602 Main Line Blvd., originally approved in 2018, from 150 units up to 190 units in one building but with an overall decrease in units.
The plan had been to build two buildings with 336 units, but changes in the designs and in local ordinances have led to a series of changes to that plan to make some of the spaces more flexible, leaving the project with a new total of 313 units.
“Since the original approvals, the applicant has refined the unit mix for Building 1 to replace the assisted living units on the 7th through 9th floors with 40 independent living units that can be converted back and forth to assisted living units,” Silverstone Health Co. said in the application. “89 assisted living units and 34 memory care units will continue to be provided on the 2nd through 6th floors and will remain assisted living units. The Applicant will be commencing the construction of Building 1 in the near future. The Applicant is now requesting an increase in the number of independent living units within the project to maintain the units originally contemplated and approved for Building 2 and allow the final site plan and building permits to proceed for that building.”
After the initial approval of the project. Alexandria changed a zoning definition from “home for the elderly” to “continuum of care facility” and the new application reflects a similar revision in the project.
