Quarry Station Seniors Apartments (“Quarry Station”), located in Manassas, VA, is an affordable housing community for older adults, developed by Wesley Housing in 2002.
In 2022, Quarry Station began substantial renovations including improvements to the safety, comfort, and wellbeing of the residents, adding a one-bedroom unit, and deepening affordability levels of the existing units. The community completed renovations this spring and is now 100% leased. Of the 98 residents enjoying the upgraded apartment community, 57 were prior residents who returned post-renovation.

“I like everything about the new Quarry Station, especially the added security system and the gym.” – Resident D.H.
“We are thrilled to resume on-site activities at Quarry Station,” shared Laurel Turay, Resident Services Coordinator. “In addition to our usual social programs, we have partnered with organizations like the Prince William Area Agency on Aging. Together, we are introducing evidence-based programs such as Bingocize, a unique blend of bingo and exercise, as well as Matter of Balance, a specialized program aimed at reducing the fear of falling and enhancing physical activity among the older adults who live in our community.”
With its extensive renovations, thriving community, and commitment to promoting independence and quality of life for older adults, Quarry Station will continue to be a place where individuals can live comfortably and affordably for years to follow.
