We are pleased to announce that The Lindley has received the 2019 Multifamily Executive (MFE) award of merit for excellence in mixed-income housing. This national award highlights multifamily projects that demonstrate outstanding design, architecture, creativity and inventiveness.
The result of a unique partnership between EYA LLC, Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County (HOC) and The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, The Lindley provides an innovative approach to public-private partnerships and has set a new standard for excellence in mixed-income multifamily building design.
Designed by the award-winning architectural firm Design Collective, The Lindley features 200 apartment units, 80 of which are income-restricted. All of the 3-bedroom units in the building are income-restricted, giving greater access to low- and moderate-income families in the area seeking access to the strong network of schools in the Bethesda-Chevy Chase community.
Market rate and affordable units are located on every floor and indistinguishable. Both include the same high quality features and finishes as well as access to all the amenities, including a high-end fitness center, a children's play room, rooftop entertainment spaces, 24-hour concierge service, and more.
Part of the larger Chevy Chase Lake development, The Lindley was designed to anchor a new transit-oriented community adjacent to the future Purple Line light rail, featuring a new private street that will connect directly to the station's entrance. While the Purple Line is projected to open in 2022, the building's close proximity to Connecticut Ave. already offers residents easy access to the Beltway, the Metrobus, and Capital Bikeshare stations.
In addition to The Lindley's affordable housing goals, the building design incorporated sustainable green building practices and the property was awarded LEED Silver Certification with the U.S. Green Building Council.
Last month, The Lindley also received the ULI Jack Kemp Award for Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing.
