On February 20, 2018, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to approve Greenspring Village’s Special Exception Amendment (SEA) application to permit the replacement of an existing pool and fitness center with a wellness center and the construction of a new parking structure. Firm shareholder and Land Use and Zoning attorney Lynne Strobel represented the applicant with the assistance of associate Nicholas Cumings and successfully led Greenspring Village through the review and evaluation process. The community strongly supported the application, which was recommended for approval by the Lee District Land Use Committee, Fairfax County staff, and the Fairfax County Planning Commission.

Greenspring Village is an established continuing care retirement community providing a wide range of care to its residents. The community offers independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing care for individuals at least 65 years in age. The graduated levels of care allow residents to age in place in proximity to family and friends. The approximately 64.68 acre facility addresses a crucial community need for senior housing in Fairfax County.

The wellness center will include new facilities for the benefit of Greenspring Village residents. Residents will now be able to enjoy an aquatic center, an expanded gym and fitness area, locker rooms, an indoor sports court, and improved dining options, including outdoor terraces. The new parking deck will help satisfy increased parking demand at the community for employees, residents, and their guests. Overall, the proposed changes will improve the quality of life for Greenspring Village residents.
