All-affordable housing facility for seniors proposed in Chantilly

A new affordable housing project in Chantilly could include more than 230 units for seniors (via Fairfax County)

(Updated at 11:55 p.m. on 7/5/2022) A 3.8-acre area in Chantilly previously approved for a hotel could be the site of a new affordable housing building for seniors.

Agape Property Management LLC is seeking Fairfax County’s permission to build Agape House, a 232-unit building with all units reserved for residents who earn 60% of the Area Median Income or below, according to plans submitted on June 29.

(Correction: Wesley Property Management was previously identified as the developer. Wesley manages Agape apartments in Fairfax but isn’t involved with the Chantilly development proposal.) 

Located south and west of Thunderbolt Place near Centreville Road, the building will include an adult day care flex space, onsite pharmacy, doctor’s office, physical therapy room, conference rooms, fitness areas, and a common dining and kitchen room.

On-site staff will support residents, providing a range of services like transportation, meals, and medical care.

The applicant says it is looking forward to providing a “fully affordable” senior living project in the Dulles Suburban Center.

“This important project includes high quality building and site design and will serve as a benchmark for the crucial goal of providing new senior and affordable housing options in western Fairfax County,” wrote Mike Van Vatta, the applicant’s representative and a land use planner with McGuireWoods.

Plans say the building would be up to five stories, with open space and amenity areas at the back. The developer also plans to submit an airport noise study because of the project’s close proximity to Dulles International Airport.

According to the plan, up to 20 employees could be on the site at any time. The company has other locations in the D.C. region.
