Fairfax County Celebrates Grand Opening of Olley Glen Senior Residences

 

On Saturday, April 2 at 11 a.m., Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova and Braddock District Supervisor John C. Cook, in partnership with the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA), will celebrate the grand opening of Olley Glen, the eighth affordable senior living community developed by the FCRHA.  Tours of the property will follow the ceremony.

Olley Glen is a 90-unit property located on the Glens of Little River campus in the Braddock District.  Olley Glen provides seniors of low and moderate income an affordable place to call home, and includes amenities such as a beautifully landscaped courtyard, washer and dryer in each unit, and universal design features throughout the property to enable aging in place.  Recreation options at Olley Glen include gardening, a horseshoe pit and shuffleboard; residents also enjoy access to the county senior center located on-site at nearby Little River Glen.

Total project cost was approximately $20.4 million and funding was provided by a variety of funding sources including Low Income Housing Tax Credits, Fairfax County’s Housing Trust Fund and Penny for Affordable Housing Fund, and federal HOME and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding.

Olley Glen is the third phase of development on the Glens at Little River campus.  Phase one included 120-units of active senior living and a county senior center operated by the county’s Department of Neighborhood and Community Services at Little River Glen.  Braddock Glen Assisted Living was phase two of the overall vision for the campus and included 60 beds of affordable, assisted living and an Adult Day Health Care facility operated by the county’s Health Department.
