The Alexandria Planning Commission in November will consider a special use permit amendment to increase allowable height for a new continuum of care facility in the West End.
Massachusetts-based Orr-BSL King, LLC filed an application to build Benchmark at West Alex, a 117-unit assisted living facility that would be constructed at 3425 North Beauregard Street.
“At full occupancy, it is anticipated that the continuum of care facility will have approximately 160 full time residents,” according to the SUP application. “The building will be staffed 24/7 with, on-average, approximately 75 full-time equivalent staff members including a variety of full-time and part-time positions.”
The company is requesting that building height restrictions be increased from 100 feet to 125 feet to “allow the construction of an additional floor of assisted living units and to allow for the erection of rooftop amenity structures.”
The building, which is near the Upland Park development, will include seven floors for the general population, with the eighth and ninth floors devoted to residents living with various forms of dementia.
According to the application:
The apartments in the assisted living neighborhood will include a variety of configurations including studio units, companion units, one-bedroom units and two-bedroom units. Common areas will include multiple dining venues (such as a formal dining room, a pub/bistro, family-style kitchen, and a penthouse cafe), living rooms, activity rooms, and a wellness center (salon/spa, fitness center, and a treatment room for resident care such as doctor and dentist visits).
In addition to the use of their private apartment, residents will enjoy restaurant-style dining, daily programming and activities (both personal and group), housekeeping and linen service, scheduled transportation, and personalized care based on the individual needs of each resident.
