Alexandria, VA – Benchmark Senior Living announced it is bringing its senior care and experiences to Virginia and the greater Washington, D.C. area for the first time with a new assisted living and Mind & Memory Care community in Alexandria.
“This project is really exciting because not only is Benchmark expanding into a new market, but this community will be an integral part of a lively mixed-use development,” said Tom Grape, founder, chairman and CEO of Benchmark Senior Living. “Older adults will have the amenities of an urban campus, coupled with a unique, luxury-living experience.”
The development will be located in the center of Alexandria’s “West Alex,” which includes places for residents to walk, shop, and dine. Over 100,000sf of retail space features a Harris Teeter grocery store and Silver Diner.
The 10-story building will have 89 modern assisted living and 26 memory care apartments in various floor plans as well as spacious common areas with hospitality-rich amenities. A club room, casual bistro, wine tasting suite, penthouse level cafe and rooftop deck will feature social gatherings, educational events and other programs designed around residents’ interests. A wellness center will be home to on-site healthcare services, such as physician visits. The community will also feature chef-prepared, gourmet meals served in multiple dining venues, housekeeping and linen services, and scheduled transportation to appointments.
Benchmark at Alexandria is scheduled to open in 2024.
