The financial arrangements of The Landing are attractive to modern seniors. Residences are rented month-to-month and require no long-term commitment.
Opening in early 2022, The Landing won’t be the typical senior living community we’ve come to know—and that’s the point, according to owner and developer Silverstone Senior Living, and operating partner Watermark Retirement Communities.
It’s all about renewal, as opposed to retirement, with a dash of five-star hotel service. Richard Ludlow, executive director, says, “I look forward to offering our residents an extraordinary lifestyle with impeccable service, pioneering programming and innovative care.”
A Silverstone signature care level is called The Bridge, which is for those who need more than assisted living services but who are far from ready for memory care. The Landing has 27 Bridge, 89 assisted living and 34 memory care residences. The 40 independent living residences include nine penthouses with expansive balconies for indoor/outdoor living.
Tall ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows take advantage of the views. Open floor plans create flow and energy. The nine-story building is graced with outdoor sculpture gardens and landscaped verandas. It’s an easy walk to neighborhood restaurants and retail, walking and biking trails by the Potomac River, and the soon-to-be-opened Potomac Yard Metro station.
The chef and staff of three restaurants will cater to the worldly tastes of future residents, collecting feedback and customizing menus as people settle in. Casual connections are likely to happen at the wine bar and lounge featuring a baby grand piano.
Body, mind and soul are meant to thrive here, with a spa, salon, fitness center and enriching activities. Watermark University workshops will be created by the community life director based on residents’ interests and the rich resources of the national capital area.
