Across the park from the Brownstones at Chevy Chase Lake, The Lindley is a luxury, mixed-income multifamily building located in the heart of Chevy Chase. With a focus on sustainability and well-being, The Lindley’s construction, location, and amenities were all thoughtfully designed with LEED certification standards in mind.
What is a LEED Certification?
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Providing a framework to create healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings, LEED certifications are globally recognized as a symbol of sustainability achievement. The rating system focuses on location, transportation, sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation, and regional priority.
The LEED for Homes designation is awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council for green building features such as:
ENERGY STAR appliances, windows and HVAC equipment
Low VOC paints, carpets and finishes
Low-flow faucets and water closets for water conservation
Third-party inspected airtight and watertight building envelope
Third-party green building inspections during the construction process
Location near transit, amenities, and infrastructure
LEED has become the benchmark for healthy, efficient, durable, and environmentally-friendly homes. Alongside the benefits of an environmentally-friendly home, residents benefit from the improved quality of life that arises from being able to live, work, and play in the same neighborhood without having to commute long distances – a smart growth principle that is shaping more neighborhoods than ever.
EYA’s Commitment to Green Building
EYA has long been committed to sustainable green building practices, both in the homes and the communities we build. Having received LEED certifications for over 900 homes in the Washington, DC region, EYA strives to build all of our homes to LEED for Homes standards, or higher. From the start of each community, we design and construct with residents’ overall health and well-being in mind, as well as environmental considerations.
With EYA’s life within walking distance® objective, we strive to create communities with LEED standards in mind, in close proximity to parks, trails, retail, dining, public transportation, and more. This allows homeowners to not only enjoy comfortable indoor living environments, but lower utility bills, shorter commutes, and the lock and go lifestyle of modern townhome living.
Developed and built jointly with Montgomery County’s Housing Opportunities Commission and the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, The Lindley features 200 apartments, underground parking, and a half-acre park adjacent to the Brownstones at Chevy Chase Lake. Designed by the award-winning architectural firm Design Collective, this unique community offers residents a balance of on-site amenities, public transportation, and parks, retail, and dining options all within walking distance.
In addition to luxury on-site amenities like a high-end fitness center, yoga studio, children’s play room, and expansive rooftop entertainment areas, the Lindley is just steps from Starbucks, Einstein Brothers, and destination dining at Tavira and Manoli Canoli. New retail shops and restaurants are also planned next door, with construction already underway.
For commuters, The Lindley’s location just off Connecticut Avenue offers easy access to the District, Beltway, Bethesda, and Silver Spring, and is adjacent to the Purple Line’s Connecticut Ave. light rail station opening in 2022. The Purple Line will allow residents to reach Bethesda Station and the Metro Red Line in just one stop. In the meantime, Metrobus, Capital Bikeshare, and more are just a quick walk (or shuttle ride) from the lobby.

Tom Maddox has seen Rockville’s landscape change dramatically since he was a boy in the 1940s. “From the center of Rockville, you didn’t have to go three miles without encountering a working farm,” says Maddox, the third generation in a family of surveyors who’ve helped developers transform the city and its surroundings from a rural outpost in the 19th century into the thriving metropolitan suburb it is today. Yet Rockville’s pastoral legacy runs deep, where neighborhoods such as King Farm and North Farm refer to their previous incarnations, and Dawson Farm Park combines public open space with the property’s two original 19th-century farmhouse buildings.
