The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted June 25th to unanimously approve entitlements for “The Mather“, a high-rise life-plan community designed for ages 62+.
“We are thrilled to have received approval for this exciting new community,” said Mather LifeWays CEO and President, Mary Leary. “The Mather will offer apartment homes with SMART home technology, amenity-rich community spaces, and luxury of a different kind for those who wish to plan ahead to live life to the fullest.”
The Mather is projected to open in 2023 and will be the first Life Plan Community in Tysons. Life Plan Communities are lifestyle communities in which people can pursue new passions and priorities, with a plan in place that supports aging well. Life Plan Communities provide an important benefit: a continuum of living options, which enables people to plan ahead to access additional services, including health care, if ever needed.
More than 200 priority reservations have already been placed, suggesting enormous interest in the project, which will add a much-needed senior housing component to Fairfax County.
“My husband and I are looking forward to becoming residents of The Mather upon its completion in 2023,” said Peggy Love of Arlington, Virginia. “The upscale proposition of The Mather is beyond just another beautiful high-rise condo building. Its forward thinking plan fits perfectly with the goals of the Tysons Corner initiative. We look forward to contributing to Tysons growth as an integral part of the area.”
Building upon Mather LifeWays 75+ years’ experience and success in providing communities and services for older adults, The Mather is expected to provide significant public benefits to Tysons and Fairfax County. The Mather will provide added retail on Westpark Drive, a publicly accessible urban park with nearly three acres of green space, employment opportunities, and a commitment to sustainability, as it will seek LEED Gold certification.
