Like all great endeavors, Falcons Landing started as a dream—a dream to create a place where those who served their nation could relax and savor life to the fullest. It began with a group of retired officers who met regularly for breakfast at Andrews Air Force Base to talk about life, living in the area and issues of the day. Establishing the Air Force Retired Officers Community in 1986, they began a ten-year journey to make their idea a reality for the Washington, D.C. area.
The original board of directors visited communities across the country to determine what would constitute the ideal retirement community. They secured financing, a perfect site, and commissioned the design and construction. Falcons Landing was completed in 1996 and, for over 25 years, the community has been everything the founders dreamed it would be and more. It is home to retired and honorably discharged military officers from all branches of service, their spouse or surviving spouse, as well as senior-level federal retirees, their spouse or surviving spouse.
In 2021, Falcons Landing opened two new luxury terrace home apartment buildings featuring four new floor plans ranging in size, all with outdoor living space. “We hear so often, when people tour Falcons Landing, that they are impressed with our forward thinking, our commitment to the now and to our past,” says Leah Daily, director of sales and marketing. “We have continued to provide first-class service to our residents during this unprecedented time and we continue to look with hope to the future!”
