Silverstone Senior Living has opened The Providence, a 154-unit high-end assisted living and memory care facility in Fairfax, Va.’s, MetroWest neighborhood. Operated by Watermark Retirement Communities, the $75 million, 158,000-square-foot property broke ground in May 2019

The community is the first to be completed out of Silverstone and Watermark’s three senior communities rising within metro Washington, D.C. The Providence encompasses 100 assisted living, 30 memory care units, as well as 24 units within The Bridge program, for those with mild cognitive impairment.

The 1.4-acre parcel is situated at 9490 Sprague Ave., just off Interstate 66 and near Vienna/Fairfax-GMU subway station. Downtown Washington, D.C., and Dulles International Airport are both within 15 miles of the site.

The property offers studio, one- and two-bedroom units across seven stories. Designed by Perkins Eastman Architects, the “U”-shaped mid-rise building is centered around a courtyard, allowing for more natural light to permeate the interior, while two underground parking levels are also part of the structure. The facility is LEED Silver certified. Thoma-Holec Design was in charge of the interior design, while ParkerRodriguez acted as landscape architect.

Luxury amenities

Apartments include kitchenettes, high-end appliances and above-average ceiling heights, with some units providing private balconies. Concierge services, a rooftop terrace with fire-pit and seating, art studio, salon and spa are some of the amenities at the location. Residents pay rent on a monthly basis, with no long-term commitments. 

The Providence caters to the new pandemic-related healthcare concerns, offering an enhanced filtration and HVAC system, cold plasma bi-polar ionization and touchless technology in common areas.
