April 7 marked a big milestone for The Residence at Colvin Run development project at 1131 Walker Road, Great Falls, VA 22066.
The project team consisting of Verity Commercial (Project Developer), IntegraCare (Operator), Bognet Construction (General Contractor), Architecture Incorporated, Buvermo Investments, and Indie Development hosted the groundbreaking ceremony of the 53,104-GSF, 62-unit senior living community in Great Falls, VA. The community offers 44 assisted living apartments and 18 memory care residences.
Verity is developing the project in partnership with IntegraCare, a senior living operator, operating since 1999 with 18 developments. Locally, IntegraCare completed Hunters Woods at Trails Edge in Reston, VA and Bay Village in Annapolis, MD.
“While Great Falls is one of the most affluent towns in the country, 34% of its citizens are 55+ and there are currently only 86 senior living units in the town,” said Herm Diebler, Co-Founder of Verity Commercial. “We are filling an immediate need for this area.”
The Residence at Colvin Run community offers seniors a great place to live with a distinctively different approach to senior living. “It is designed to maintain the character and protect the look, feel, and environment of the area with more luxury than industry standard resident rooms, high quality construction, and its overall smaller cottage like size and feel,” said Rick Irwin, Chairman of IntegraCare.
The people of Great Falls, community leaders, and the project team is to thank for getting the project to this celebrated milestone. Among the guests were community leaders Fairfax County Dranesville District Supervisor, John Foust and Great Falls Citizens Association President & Executive Board, Bill Canis.
“We had a great turn out from the community and Fairfax County leadership,” said Ken Traenkle, Verity Commercial Co-Founder. “I would like to thank them for their help in making this needed community project a reality.”
Scheduled to open 2022, the community will feature the latest IT technology and security systems, state-of-the-art pathogen control technologies, community-wide Wi-Fi, covered porches, thoughtful architecture, fitness, an art studio, a theater, and multiple dining venues, including an open-hearth brick oven, providing residents with variety and choice.
