New affordable housing project proposed for seniors in Chantilly

The senior living and daycare facility targets low-income individuals (via Fairfax County)

A vacant 3.8-acre portion of land in Chantilly could soon be the home for a new affordable housing development for seniors.

Agape Property Management is seeking Fairfax County’s permission to build Agape House Chantilly, a 232-unit development with an adult day care facility, on the southeast side of Thunderbolt Place and west of Centerview Drive.

Mike Van Atta, a land use planner with McGuire Woods, said Agape is excited to develop a fully affordable senior living complex 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 the western Fairfax County,” Atta wrote.

Approval of the plan would require rezoning the property, which is currently planned for hotel uses that have not been constructed. The applicant is also seeking a special exception to allow for an independent living facility and adult day care facility on the site.

The independent living facility will house up to 300 residents, catering to those making 60% of the area median income or below. Roughly 200 participants are planned for the adult day care facility.

The five-story building will include a pharmacy, therapy room, fitness and recreational areas, and a common kitchen and dining room. The business will also include services like transportation and meal service. Up to 42 employees will likely be present.

The plan assumes that most residents and adult day care participants will “rely on shuttle services provided by Agape House Chantilly,” the application says.
