Proposed Life Plan Community Tysons, Virginia

Mather LifeWays is designing a Life Plan Community in Tysons, Virginia, for people age 62 and better.

Life Plan Communities are lifestyle communities in which people can enjoy vibrant and engaged lifestyles, with a plan in place that supports aging well. Life Plan Communities provide an important benefit: a continuum of living options, which enables people to age in place while maintaining their desired lifestyle, having planned ahead to access additional services and care, if ever needed.

Features of the Proposed Community

  • Spacious, modern-living floor plans, including one- and two-bedroom options, some with dens
  • A variety of dining venues designed to deliver distinct culinary experiences, including al fresco dining
  •  Fitness center and day spa, indoor swimming pool, group exercise studio, and cardio/weight training center
  • Additional amenity spaces, including outdoor terraces, meeting spaces, and more 
  • Inspiring social, educational, and cultural opportunities, such as digital media workshops, live music, art + technology seminars, and featured lecturers
  • Culinary package options, plus housekeeping, maintenance, and landscaping services 
  • 24-hour concierge and car valet service with below-grade parking, scheduled shuttle transportation, and nearby Metro service
  • Priority access to on-site Life Centre, which provides a full continuum of living options, including assisted living, memory support, and skilled nursing care suites, with various health plan options 
  • As part of a mixed-use development, the


Pricing will include a one-time entrance fee that is 90% refundable to the resident or resident’s estate, and a monthly service fee. Prices will depend on apartment home size, location, service package, and health plan selected. Additional information will be provided when available.


The community is projected to open in 2023.

8 Reasons Why the Proposed Mather LifeWays Life Plan Community Is Important to the Future of Tysons

  1. Meets a pressing need
    With 13% of Fairfax County residents age 65+, the proposed Life Plan Community will provide a much-needed housing option. There are very few local options like this for older adults.
  2. Promotes activity and engagement
    The proposed community is part of a plan to grow Tysons to create a walkable, urban community in close proximity to Metro service, including a diverse mix of uses, including residential, retail, and service businesses.
  3. Inspires great architecture
    Solomon Cordwell Buenz has been commissioned to create a modem, contextual design that is articulated with balconies and curved façade elements, providing attractive, varied architecture that complements buildings in the surrounding area.
  4. Low traffic impact
    The proposed Life Plan Community will result in approximately 90% fewer “peak hour” trips compared to what office or multi-family apartment homes would generate.The proposed community will also provide shuttle service to reduce individual trips.
  5. Supports green strategies
    Mather LifeWays will seek a LEED Gold designation.
  6. Provides revenue to the County with a low-impact use
    The project will include off-site road and traffic signal improvements while supporting local schools and public services through proffers and payment of property and sales tax.
  7. Supports local businesses
    Residents, staff, and guests will support local businesses by purchasing goods and services, creating a “multiplier effect” throughout the area economy.
  8. Public park
    We will provide public access to nearly three acres of open space that is proposed to include walking paths, sculpture garden, lawn for events, dog park, playground, and more.
