EYA and Montgomery County will take the next step toward redeveloping the Shady Grove Metro station neighborhood, now that the Planning Board has granted preliminary plan approval for EYA's proposed mixed-use community at the site.
Today, Shady Grove Metro station is flanked by several County facilities, which will soon be moved offsite to make way for over 2,000 new homes, over 40,000 square feet of neighborhood serving retail shops and 131,000 square feet of office space.
The neighborhood will also feature a Village Center with a new County library, alongside multiple parks, a community garden and pedestrian-friendly sidewalks designed to create an urban village worthy of the Metro site at the end of the red line.
Groundbreaking won't likely be for a couple more years, but the site would be EYA's largest development in the company's 20 year history. In recent years, EYA developed several smart growth neighborhoods in Montgomery County, including National Park Seminary, The Brownstones at Park Potomac, Fallsgrove, Strathmore Park, Brownstones at Wheaton and Cameron Hill. More details will be posted here as they become available.
