A new fitness studio is coming to Wildwood Shopping Center. [solidcore] will be opening its first Maryland location in December, just in time to burn off the holiday treats!

[solidcore] is an intense 50-minute workout that is said to burn 600 calories per class and “work muscles to failure.” The class is not for beginners and it is recommended that you have a solid fitness foundation before attending. For those looking for less intense workout options, there is also a Washington Sports Club just across the street.

EYA’s townhomes in Bethesda at Montgomery Row and Grosvenor Heights are just steps from these fitness studios and all the great recreation activities at Cabin John Park, including tennis courts, ice skating rink and hiking/biking trails. Getting (or staying) in shape will be no sweat at all!

Montgomery Row residents who may be looking to add little family members to their abode have an excellent nearby choice for child care.

Rock Spring Children’s Center has been a Bethesda-favorite for almost 30 years and even has a 5-star Yelp rating! The facilities are 7 years new and include a private enclosed outdoor space, as well as a large indoor play area (particularly useful for cold, rainy days). Rock Spring accommodates infants through pre-K and the center is proud of its low child-to-teacher ratios. Drop-in care is available on a case-by-case basis.

The center will be hosting an Open House on Friday, November 13 from 8 AM – 10 AM and you can RSVP for the event by calling 301-530-4526 or emailing office@rockspringcc.com. If you think you’d be interested in Rock Spring Children’s Center, complete the Wait List form on their website, even up to 9 months in advance of your little one’s arrival.

While many people may not think of the mall as a culinary destination, Westfield Montgomery Mall offers shoppers and diners a wide array of delicious food options. And the dining scene continues to grow with new restaurants now open or coming soon!

In addition to favorites such as CRAVE American Kitchen and Sushi Bar and the newly opened Naples Ristorante E Pizzeria, two more restaurants are scheduled to open at the mall. Rockville, Maryland-based Shanghai 66 will be opening soon, serving up dumplings, Szechuan-style beef, braised duck and more. Tara Thai will also be welcoming hungry shoppers with tasty Thai dishes such as curries, pad thai and a variety of rice and noodles. Scheduled to open in early 2016.

Looking for Labor Day weekend ideas? Your local EYA neighborhood has plenty to keep you active and entertained all weekend long.

Bring the kids down to the Interactive Fountain to soak in the last of the Summer fun. Afterwards, enjoy a relaxed dinner on the patio at one of the downtown restaurants.


Head over to Cabin John Regional Park and enjoy the outdoors in this scenic 528 acre park. Unwind with a picnic or get active out on the hiking and biking trails or tennis courts. Be sure to bring your four-legged friend for a trip to the dog park!

If a leisurely brunch sounds tempting, Mon Ami Gabi is serving an extra day of brunch for the 3-day weekend. Indulge in Waffles with Nutella, Steak Frites, crepes and more. After brunch, wander through the shops at Bethesda Row and treat yourself to something special.


Now in its 77th year, the Gaithersburg Labor Day Parade will be hitting the streets of Olde Towne.

Rethinking Outdoor Spaces at Grosvenor Heights

August 14, 2015 | by

For many people, townhome living is a lock-and-go way of living with little home maintenance and even less yard maintenance. But that doesn’t mean that townhouse owners have to give up the outdoor space they love.

In fact, EYA’s Grosvenor Heights elevator townhomes are surrounded by lush green space preserves and old-growth trees. Atop the luxury home, owners will enjoy an expansive rooftop terrace unlike anything in the area. We’ve even introduced a variety of innovations designed to bring the indoors out:

  • Retractable awnings and retractable screens
  • Outdoor music and television
  • Outdoor cooking, refrigeration and dishwashers
  • Rooftop cameras and home automation to easily view activities from anywhere in the home

Every amenity you’d expect to find for an outdoor viewing party of the PGA Tour or evening cocktail hour is available on these oversized rooftop terraces.

Stop by our onsite sales center today and enjoy pre-construction pricing. Open daily 11 AM – 6 PM at Grosvenor Heights.
