We're excited to see The Washington Post talking about right-sizing options in housing this week. EYA has been following the needs of empty nesters for years, by developing walkable neighborhoods throughout Washington. Many of our homes offer one-level floor plans or elevators for access to all levels. It's great to see more options being offered for simplifying life and spending less time on yard work and home maintenance.
We are honored to announce that EYA was selected Company of the Year at the LOCUS Leadership Awards luncheon. Sponsored by Smart Growth America, the LOCUS Leadership Awards celebrate real estate developers and investors who have demonstrated exemplary commitment to public leadership and development for walkable, sustainable communities.
EYA has long been a proponent of life within walking distance, in which homeowners enjoy easy access to transportation, recreation, shopping, and dining. And increasingly, new homeowners are seeking walkable lifestyles even in the suburbs.
Now more than ever, homeowners are seeking walkable communities that promote sustainable and convenient lifestyles. Today’s buyers want to ditch the commute and live within walking distance to shops, restaurants, parks and other urban amenities.
Every year, Smart Growth America presents the LOCUS Leadership Awards to developers and investors who have demonstrated exemplary commitment to public leadership, smart growth development and furthering the mission of advocating for sustainable, walkable urban development.
