On Monday, construction is set to begin on 210 new senior living units in Reston.

The units, to be called Hunters Woods at Trails Edge, will be located in place of the former United Christian Parish Church at 2222 Colts Neck Road.

Of the 210 units, 90 will be designated as independent living, 81 for assisted living, 15 for special needs, and 24 assigned to memory care.

The project will offer 20 percent of the independent living units as affordable units, and 4 percent of the assisted living beds will be available for residents who are eligible for the Virginia Department of Ageing and Rehabilitative Services Auxiliary Grant Program.

Fairfax County supervisors approved the project in May 2016. A ceremonial groundbreaking was held at the site in March.

The community will occupy a 4.3-acre lot across the street from Hunters Woods Village Center. Hunters Woods at Trails Edge will offer modern units with dining rooms, family rooms, activity rooms, fitness centers and indoor parking. The facility will also include an arts studio, barber shop, and salon.

Advanced security and communication technology will be installed, and residents will have access to community-wide WiFi, say project representatives.

In addition, a new bus shelter will be built on the property to allow for access to public transit, and the facility’s shuttle service will provide transportation to additional transit, medical facilities and shopping centers.

Developers said Reston’s Turquoise Trail pathway will be lighted, as it passes under Colts Neck Road to Hunters Woods Village Center, where residents will have access to Reston Community Center, and six “Life-Trail stations” designed specifically for senior fitness will be installed along the nature pathway on site.

Additionally, five outdoor terraces will overlook landscaped grounds, mature woods and nature trails.

Hunters Woods at Trails Edge is being developed by a team comprised of Atlantic Realty Companies, AEW Capital Management and IntegraCare.

“Hunters Woods at Trails Edge has been a long time in the planning,” said David A. Ross, president of Atlantic Companies. “We are proud to bring this leading-edge amenity to the community, the first of its kind in Reston.”

Helping to put the project together was Avison Young senior housing expert Jim Kornick, who works on a team with Dan Baker that specializes in senior housing investment across the country.

“It will be an exceptional community that will provide the highest quality of care,” said Kornick, “You could not ask for a nicer community in a better location.”

Representatives said construction costs are estimated at $72 million for the 230,000-square-foot project. Construction is set to begin Monday, and is expected to be complete by January of 2019.
