EYA’s new townhome community at Arts District Hyattsville has again been named “Best Mixed Use Neighborhood” by the 2010 Great American Living Awards (GALA) Committee at a ceremony on October 21st.
The GALA competition is the DC building industry’s most prestigious awards event, in which architects, builders, and developers select the area’s best new home communities and home designs.
Arts District Hyattsville, since opening, has been recognized with 15 local and national awards for its smartly planned urban design, unique architecture, and onsite amenities - including a restored 1950’s automobile showroom which has been repurposed into the community’s clubhouse.
Anchoring the 25-acre neighborhood are art galleries, shops and restaurants, with popular local favorites opening Spring 2011: Busboys and Poets, Tara Thai, Yes! Organic Market, Elevation Burger and Chipotle.
By providing onsite amenities and neighborhood retailers in the community, residents enjoy easy access to everything they need and love – all while spending less time in the car. It’s a greener, more convenient, and more relaxing way to live. It’s life within walking distance and smart city living.
Since its founding in 1992, EYA has won over 150 GALA Awards (some formerly the MAME and Monument Awards) and just last year was given the GALA Lifetime Achievement Award. To learn more about EYA and Arts District Hyattsville, visit www.eya.com.
