The Landing Alexandria

In the heart of Alexandria, Virginia’s largest walkable downtown, The Landing welcomes you with sweeping views of the Potomac River and Washington, D.C. Conveniently situated in an exciting neighborhood surrounded by cultural and intellectual hubs offering convenient access to leading universities, the cobblestone streets of Old Town, shopping, fine dining, and other attractions.

Redefining senior living The Landing offers a unique combination of a boutique hotel, high-end residential, and of course, senior living. The nine-story building of 215,859 SF offers 163 residential units and customizable care options for Independent Living, Assisted Living, The Bridge, and Memory Care. With a thoughtful approach to senior care, the groundbreaking Thrive Memory Care program stands out with additional support from “Nayas,” caregivers passionate about creating a loving and nurturing environment for residents.

The deliberate interior design was accomplished with thorough research into the local history, lore, and culture, from the placement of an incredible collection of art, sculpture, furniture, and light fixtures that resulted in an eye-catching array of color, art, and texture, a thoroughly modern aesthetic coupled with timeless elegance. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide natural light and breathtaking views where residents can observe Virginia’s changing seasons. The organic shapes and patterns found within the fabrics and textural accents, blended with natural materials such as natural stone, ceramic, metal, and wood, bring in biophilic elements weaving in wellness to the experience of this community.
