The Virginian senior living facility in Fairfax County began work this week on an 18-month renovation designed to transform it into a resort lifestyle community.

When completed, the seven-story 367,000-square-foot building will include four wings featuring 155 independent-living apartments along with 56 assisted-living units and 38 memory care residences. 

The renovation will cost $56.5 million and will include state-of-the-art technology, sustainability, multiple dining venues, a wine cellar, sports bar, indoor golf simulator, theater, entertainment venues, salons, pickleball, bocce ball, a putting green, dog park and more.

It will be one of the first communities in Fairfax to offer unique luxury rentals with the high-end services and amenities often associated with properties that require expensive buy-in costs and entrance fees. 

The Virginian is located on a 32-acre wooded campus just minutes from downtown Fairfax.
