Older adults of Northern Virginia may soon have a luxury living option available in the city of Alexandria, following review from the City Planning Commission next month.
The proposed Aspire Alexandria—formerly labeled as Aspire at Old Town North—is a 133-unit, six-story, resort-style apartment community for local seniors located several blocks from the Braddock Road Metro Station.
Within the complex, residents will have access to a wide array of amenities, including a spa with hair and nail service, a fitness center with senior-focused equipment and meeting rooms for private gatherings or dinners of up to 10-12 people. Residents will also have the opportunity to participate in daily curated programming, such as fitness classes and game nights.
The developer of the project, Arlington-based Bonaventure Realty Group, specializes in developing senior housing communities of similar stature throughout Virginia.
“Alexandria provides a convenient location for seniors to live near their family and friends while having quick access to Alexandria’s vibrant retail neighborhood and the historic, cultural, and entertainment offerings of Washington D.C.,” says Samantha Tricoli, the director of senior living for Bonaventure.
In addition to resident-only features, the ground level of the apartment community will be home to a 4,550-square-foot restaurant available to the public.
Updated plans for Aspire Alexandria are set to be approved by the City Planning Commission on Feb. 4, followed by an expected consideration by the City Council on Feb. 22, according to Bonaventure Vice President of Investments, Jeremy Moss. If approved, the apartment complex would take the space of Tony’s Auto Service, which has been at the location of 1112 First St. in Alexandria for more than 70 years.
