At EYA, it is often said that we don't just build homes, we build neighborhoods. Every neighborhood is built with a holistic approach to not only create housing opportunities, but also with an eye towards enduring design, place making and connecting residents with each other and their community. This may be done in various ways, such as creating parks and playgrounds where neighbors can meet and become friends, or through unique art installations that give the neighborhood a sense of place and makes it feel like home.

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.
