Capabilities Our capacity to achieve complex entitlements, develop enduring projects, and create lasting value sets us apart


Complex Entitlements

With our strong reputation with local governments and public agencies, EYA has unparalleled experience shepherding complicated projects through complex entitlement processes.

Value Creation for Partners

Our second to none reputation, our high-quality projects, and our our ability to obtain complex entitlements combine to deliver value to our land sellers, our partners, and existing and future assets proximate to our projects.

Project Criteria Life within walking distance® is not just our tagline, it defines how we evaluate properties for development. We consistently seek to acquire and develop sites suitable for townhouse, multifamily, and mixed-income development in the DC Metro area.

EYA has demonstrated a firm commitment to environmentally sound business practices. And that means more than simply using eco-friendly materials. We support a holistic approach, considering what, where and how we build. The result is a collection of neighborhoods that are praised by local officials and community groups, consistently noted by national awards programs, and loved by the people who call them home.


EYA homes are situated in urban communities, where we put homeowners within walking distance of shopping, dining and other conveniences, reducing the number of cars on the road


Our projects maximize the use of valuable close-in land and reduce sprawl by building up rather than out.


We choose to build where restoration and renewal will positively impact the community. As often as possible, we select sites with existing power, water and sewer lines, roads and infrastructure.


Restricting development to these kinds of sites allows us to conserve resources, preserve open spaces and maintain our ongoing commitment to smart growth.


Live/work homes and mixed-use neighborhoods provide more opportunities for business owners to conserve energy and eliminate commutes and provide homeowners with access to the goods and services they provide—within walking distance.
