NALHFA Member Spotlight: Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, June 18, 2019
Updated: Monday, June 10, 2019

During its 2019 Annual Conference, NALHFA presented the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority with the Multifamily Excellence award in recognition of The Fallstead.


The Fallstead is a shining example of how partnering with nonprofit developers in the revitalization of outmoded county facilities results in affordable housing preservation and new production in Fairfax County. Before the renovation, the facility housed a 22-bed independent living facility. Located on 8.66 acres in McLean, Virginia, the former Lewinsville Elementary School was transferred from the Fairfax County Public Schools to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in 1985.  The use of the former Lewinsville Elementary School addressed the then current need for senior housing but did not fully integrate that housing in the surrounding community. The Fallstead at Lewinsville Center now addresses this need by offering  a total of 82 units of affordable housing for seniors earning between 30 percent and 50 percent of the area median income.


Wesley Hamel Lewinsville LLC was the master developer of the infrastructure improvements for the entire 8.66-acre site, while Wesley Lewinsville Limited Partnership is the owner and developer for The Fallstead (senior residences), which will have a 99-year ground lease on approximately 2.66 acres of the site.


A second County building is scheduled to open late this spring, which will include a senior center, adult day care center, and two private child daycare centers. At no cost to the County, Wesley-Hamel designed, developed, constructed, and owns and operates The Fallstead.
