What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘woonerf?’ The sound you hear as a tennis ball flies by? A special language in which only dogs can communicate? Not quite. A woonerf is a European-style shared street, designed to allow drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians to share the space, making the street much more welcoming, appealing, and safer for everyone. Generally free of traffic lights, stop signs, or curbs, woonerfs open up the streets and allow for every use simultaneously, making travelling from point A to point B a more social, slowed down process.
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.
