Roz Winegrad was fifth in line last November to purchase a townhome by EYA at Cabin John Village, even though the Potomac, Maryland, development was still just a fenced-in parking lot. The single mom, whose son leaves for college next fall, had been looking at several options to downsize from her large contemporary house in Bethesda. “I was looking for a way to not feel so isolated, and to be part of a community,” she says of the unit she chose that faces Cabin John Regional Park. At the same time, Winegrad will be able to take just a few short steps to the shops and restaurants of the newly updated Cabin John Village. “I think it’s going to be a premier shopping and dining destination without the craziness of downtown Bethesda or Pike & Rose,” she says. “I still want serenity, and I still want a home in an area where there aren’t millions of people every day.”
Whether you’re moving into your first home, downsizing to a new location, or just looking to refresh your furnishings, there are so many unique and creative ways to switch up your home decor to feel fresh and new without breaking the bank.
When it comes to living in a city, proximity is everything. Being close to family and friends, your favorite activities, and planning your commute to work are all equally important factors to consider when choosing a neighborhood. It can be challenging to find a location that balances not only your wants and needs, but the vibrancy of downtown with a quieter, close-knit community you can escape to at the end of the day.
We’re excited to introduce EYA’s newest neighborhood coming to Northeast Washington, DC: Riggs Park Place in Fort Totten, opening for sales in Spring 2020. Located just a short walk to the Fort Totten Metro station, these new townhomes will provide the best of city living with a distinctly urban vibe. Striking an artful balance between the vibrancy of downtown DC with a quiet, neighborhood retreat, Riggs Park Place is just moments from everything you need and everywhere you want to go.
Last week, EYA’s CEO and co-founder, Bob Youngentob, spoke on a panel with members of ULI Washington to the Planning Directors Advisory Committee of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government (COG) to share some of the challenges inhibiting new housing production and offer suggestions for changes that could enhance housing production with the region’s planning directors.
For both artists and art lovers, The Art League's annual Patrons' Show is the highlight of the year.
