The Manor Care Facility on Route 50 east of the Fairfax County Parkway is an existing two-story 120-bed skilled nursing facility. Manor Care is proposing to add a one-story 56-bed Alzheimer facility, a three-story 126-bed assisted-living / personal-care facility, and a additional 60 skilled nursing beds to the existing 120-beds.
Manor Care reviewed their proposal with the Fair Lake community on the southern property boundary and reached agreement on the set-back placement of the Alzheimer facility.
A committee member will review manor care's plans with the Pender Methodist Church directly north of Manor Care on the opposite side of Route 50.
Manor Care will apply for a Certificate of Need from the Commonwealth of Virginia in order to obtain permission to build the additional skilled nursing beds.
There will be a minimum impact on traffic due to shift changes occurring in mid-afternoon. Most visitors are expected during weekends or evenings after 6:30 pm, with few visitors during weekday commuting times.
Maywood Building Corporation proposed building both elderly housing and a residential community on the north side of Route 50 between the International County Club and the golf driving range opposite the Greenbriar Shopping Center. Their development would be composed of 576 elderly units, 161 single family attached units and 19 single family detached units.
The elderly units may be four to six story buildings. Entrances to both the elderly and single family units would be at the existing traffic lights serving the Greenbriar Shopping Center and Majestic Lane.
What was presented was a preliminary proposal. The committee expressed concern with the proposed height of the elderly residences. The developer stated that they would further refine their design and present the revised plans for additional review at some future date. No action was taken at this time on that basis.
