Last month several HAND members celebrated the grand opening of The Fallstead at Lewinsville Center, a senior housing community in McLean, VA. The Fallstead offers 72 one-bedroom and 10 two-bedroom modern, independent-living rental units for persons 62 years of age and older whose household income is at or below 50% of the area median income (AMI), according to a press release.
Wiencek + Associates Architects + Planners served as the Architect, Hamel Builders as the General Contractor, and Wesley Housing as the Developer.
Community amenities include an on-site fitness center, business center, library, a landscaped courtyard, and community garden. 10% of the units are fully accessible for individuals with mobility impairments and 2% are fully accessible for individuals with vision and hearing impairments. The community is built to Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) Universal Design and EarthCraft Multifamily Platinum Design standards.

On October 4, Mission First Housing Group welcomed partners and friends in celebration of the collective efforts to provide affordable homes and support services for individuals and families in need. The event raised more than $135,000 to help Mission First expand its efforts to reach even more individuals.
