Enterprise Community Development, Fellowship Square Finish Community for Low-Income Seniors in Reston

Enterprise Community Development and Fellowship Square have opened Lake Anne House, a 240-unit community for low-income seniors in Reston, VA.

The development team constructed a new building adjacent to the original, 1970s-era Lake Anne Fellowship House, a solution that minimized disruption to existing residents

The new Lake Anne House includes 56 studios, 178 one-bedroom and six two-bedroom apartments. All units incorporate Universal Design standards, which were not in place when the original building was constructed. Fifty-four of the 240 units are fully handicap accessible, and the building is Earthcraft and EnergyStar certified.

The property includes amenities for its older adult residents, including a fitness center, arts and crafts room, social hall, sunroom, game room, outdoor terrace, wellness clinic for visiting medical professionals, and on-site management and resident services offices.

“This project will enable financially fragile older adults to be able to age in place here in Northern VA for many years to come,” said Christy Zeitz, CEO of Fellowship Square. “While Reston is now one of the most expensive zip codes in the state, residents at the Lake Anne House — many of whom live on Social Security or Supplemental Security Income alone, with an average income between just $10,000-$15,000/year — are able to live independently in the dynamic Reston community.”
