IntegraCare’s independent and assisted living planned for the Hunters Woods area and a new Chick-fil-A restaurant for North Point Village Center have now cleared the final planning step and can proceed.

Here’s what’s being planned:

Senior Living: Pennsylvania-based IntegraCare plans to build a 230,000-square-foot complex at 2222 Colts Neck Rd., the site of the former United Christian Parish.

The 4.3-acre lot at 2222 Colts Neck was first approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors for 210 senior housing units in 2007.

The building will be 230,000 square feet in two wings, one along Colts Neck and one along Reston Parkway. The estimated completion date is 2020.

Assisted and Independent Living at Hunters Woods/Credit: Fairfax CountyIntegraCare plans to retain 91 of the 210 previously approved independent living units and to add 79 assisted living, 24 memory care, and 16 high-acuity assisted living/memory care rooms.

The assisted living facility will feature multiple dining venues, a theater, salon, barber shop, physical therapy unit, fitness center, library and computer center, Club room, sun room, outdoor fitness stations, raised gardening area, and an arts and crafts center, and a Memory Care garden, according to a county planning department staff report.

Chick-fil-A: The national fast food company plans to tear down the empty stand-alone building that formerly housed Burger King. The Burger King closed in 2014.

Chick-fil-A plans to tear down the Burger King building and replace it with one about 58-percent larger but with a design more harmonious to the surrounding North Point exteriors.
