Last night at MNCBIA‘s annual Environmental Awards, judges praised EYA’s Chancellor’s Row townhome community with the firm’s fourth Green Building award.
EYA’s commitment to green building practices has been recognized year after year in industry award competitions.
A panel of industry experts weighed criteria such as sustainable design, construction which minimizes environmental impact, homes with reduced energy and water consumption, and the protection of the health of occupants.
In 2009, EYA committed to design all future neighborhoods to LEED for Homes standards, and the company has received over 500 certifications from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Chancellor’s Row, which was also named 2011 Community of the Year, is a 10-acre urban infill townhouse community, built to LEED-ND and LEED for Homes standards and includes onsite Capital Bikeshare and Zipcar. The community is over 90% sold out and a limited number of homes remain for quick move-in.
The rear yard townhomes are perfect for entertaining family and friends.
Discover the best of Old Town living at EYA’s newest luxury townhome community, Old Town Commons. The townhomes feature classic rowhome designs and private enclosed rear yards, all within walking distance of King Street, the Alexandria waterfront and the Braddock Metro.

EYA’s newest Montgomery County townhome neighborhood in Bethesda is coming soon and the company has something very, very special designed for this community.
The townhomes at Little Falls Place are planned atop the Capital Crescent trail, in a beautiful wooded setting. To capture the ambiance of this idyllic location, EYA will introduce a full-level rooftop terrace, for up to 800 sq. ft. of rooftop entertainment & relaxation.

EYA's Bethesda townhomes at Little Falls Place overlook the Capital Crescent Trail, which connects Silver Spring to Georgetown.
After grabbing an evening cocktail, relax in front of the gas fireplace with stone surround, which is also included on these oversized terraces.
Additional options include an outdoor dishwasher for larger parties, built-in Viking grill, decorative wood decking, custom planter boxes, retractable awning, retractable kitchen shade cover and rough-in for hot tub components.
Bethesda, MD – Washington’s leading urban residential developer and home builder, EYA, has acquired an infill redevelopment site in Bethesda from longtime businessman and attorney, Peter B. Hoyt.
EYA's Little Falls Place Townhomes in Bethesda, Maryland
The property, located at the intersection of Little Falls Parkway and River Road, abuts Montgomery County parkland and the Capital Crescent trail, while offering easy access to the Kenwood Station Whole Foods, Friendship Heights, Mazza Gallerie and downtown Bethesda. Formerly, the Hoyt property was home to Betco Block Plant, a manufacturing and distribution facility for brick and concrete building materials.

“Over the years, I dedicated my career to the building products industry. I’m eager to see this site transformed from a manufacturing purpose into a neighborhood of homes which will use some of the very products we’ve made”, said Mr. Hoyt. “There is no better partner than EYA for this financial and building venture.”
The Townhomes at Little Falls Place will include an expansive rooftop terrace with outdoor kitchen and fireplace - all overlooking the Capital Crescent Trail.
The 1.8-acre site will soon be comprised of 25 luxury townhomes and 5 moderately-priced dwelling units (MPDUs). The new neighborhood, Little Falls Place, has been designed in a modern, urban vernacular with walls of glass to capture the scenic views of the parkland and Capital Crescent Trail. Materials such as stone and stained wood combine with clean lines of glass and metal. Further, expansive outdoor spaces include rear yards, balconies and rooftop terraces complete with outdoor kitchens and fireplaces.
Expansive windows overlook nature preserves in this open floorplan townhome.
“What we’ve envisioned for Little Falls Place is a rare blend of vibrant city living in a peaceful, relaxing setting. There aren’t many places in Washington where you can achieve this level of access to world class shopping and dining, yet enjoy acres of nature preserves and onsite trail access,” said Bob Youngentob, EYA President and Co-Founder.
European Chef's kitchens feature sleek cabinetry, quartz countertops and appliances by Bosch, Thermador and Sub Zero.
Consistent with EYA’s other neighborhoods, Little Falls Place will be built to the U.S. Green Building Council’s environmentally-friendly building standards, LEED for Homes. New home sales will begin in February 2013 from an offsite sales center, priced from $1.4 million.

Things are heating up at Mosaic District! The townhomes are already 50% sold out, shops are opening weekly and the community won big at last night’s GALA Awards ceremony.
The Great American Living Awards (GALA) honor excellence in homebuilding and community design. EYA won awards for the Aster and Bryant models at Mosaic District for best townhome design, in which judges look for thoughtful use of space, special features and overall quality of architecture. EYA also won an award for the Site Plan at Mosaic District, which features 112 new urban townhomes in a walkable neighborhood anchored by nearly a half million square feet of boutique retail shopping.
Also this week, Angelika Film Center celebrated its grand opening and is now showing a variety of independent and international films complete with a Chef-inspired menu, cocktails and plush, stadium-style reclining seats. Tickets are available now, steps from EYA’s townhomes at Mosaic District.
Sure, the loft level of our Bryant model townhome is a perfect retreat for your out-of-town guests. But if they're visiting for an extended period, the HYATT house hotel at Mosaic District is another great option!
Finally, HYATT house is now open at Mosaic District. HYATT house is a brainchild of Hyatt Hotels and was designed to offer a more comfortable stay for longer-term guests. Amenities include residential-inspired guestrooms, suites with full kitchens, complimentary full hot breakfast, free wi-fi and printing, a bar & lounge, fitness center and more. So while your new EYA townhome will certainly accommodate your out-of-town guests, the HYATT house is a great option for friends who want to stay a while.
