Renovations are under way at the vacant MicAnd building on Onyx Court to create Greenfield of Spotsylvania.

Greenfield Senior Living has purchased the vacant MicAnd Assisted Living building in Spotsylvania County and plans to reopen it as a senior care facility.

Greenfield, based in Falls Church, owns 12 senior communities in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. It has two assisted living facilities in the Fredericksburg area, both in Stafford County.

Greenfield purchased the MicAnd building earlier this month from Dr. Abdul Durrani. The 3.7-acre parcel sold for $2.75 million. The company plans to spend about $1 million to renovate the building and hopes to reopen in late January of next year as Greenfield of Spotsylvania, said Kevin Bonello, communications director. The building is located at 9300 Onyx Court.

The newest Greenfield will have 66 beds in 48 rooms, Bonello said. Thirty-four beds will be in a locked unit for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. Thirty-two beds will be for assisted-living residents. All of the beds will be for private-pay residents, rather than those who receive funding from the federal/state Medicaid program.

Greenfield of Spotsylvania is expected to open early next year.

“We’re really excited about the property and the project,” Bonello said.

Renovations are under way to the exterior and interior of the building, including the resident rooms, dining rooms and common areas, Bonello said.

“It’s going to look completely different,” he said.

Greenfield Senior Living recently celebrated its tenth anniversary. Its first property was Greenfield of Fredericksburg, an assisted living facility off White Oak Road in southern Stafford.

“We’re very comfortable with the need and the growth of the [Fredericksburg] area,” Bonello said.

MicAnd Assisted Living has been vacant since its Aug. 10 closing. The owners moved its 57 elderly residents to other long term care centers.
