New Senior Living Community Opens In Alexandria’s Potomac Yard

ALEXANDRIA, VA — A senior living community is the latest addition to Alexandria’s growing Potomac Yard neighborhood.

The Landing is a luxury senior living community at 2620 Main Line Boulevard, which is across from the future Inova Oakville Healthplex and closed to the upcoming Virginia Tech Innovation Campus and Potomac Yard Metro Station.

A ribbon cutting was held with Mayor Justin Wilson, members of City Council and other officials Wednesday. The opening follows construction that began in 2020.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of The Landing,” Wilson said in a statement. “The City welcomes new and future residents to this stunning community as Potomac Yard continues its transformation to be one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the entire DC metro area.”

The nine-story building features 163 apartment homes, including 40 independent living units, 89 assisted living units and 34 memory care units. Studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units are available on a monthly basis with no long-term commitment. Apartments come with modern kitchenettes, upscale finishes and tall ceilings, and some have private balconies with river views.

Residents have access to amenities like concierge services, restaurants, lounges with a full bar fitness equipment, a salon and day spa, private courtyards and a rooftop terrace. The rooftop terrace comes with an indoor and outdoor lounge, billiards, community gardens and fire pit seating. Restaurants on site include Delano’s, Riverside Café, and Pilot’s Pub. A CVS Pharmacy is also offered on site, available to The Landing residents and the public.

“We are exceptionally proud of The Landing,” stated Bobby Zeiller, co-CEO of developer Silverstone Senior Living. “The Landing is the first community in our portfolio to offer independent living; it will undoubtedly be a dynamic destination for seniors in the area.”
