Developer Unveils Renderings For Bethesda Townhomes


Bethesda-based EYA developers yesterday unveiled renderings for its planned 30-townhome community on the former site of the Betco cinder block plant near Little Falls Parkway. EYA bought the property, which will be developed into Little Falls Place, from businessman and attorney Peter Hoyt. EYA won approval for the zoning change in July from the Montgomery County Planning Board and in September from the county's Board of Appeals. The 25 market rate townhomes will start at $1.4 million and back up to the Capital Crescent Trail. EYA will also build five moderate priced dwelling units (MPDUs) as part of the 1.8-acre development about 1,200 feet south of the intersection of Little Falls Parkway and River Road. "What we’ve envisioned for Little Falls Place is a rare blend of vibrant city living in a peaceful, relaxing setting. There aren’t many places in Washington where you can achieve this level of access to world class shopping and dining, yet enjoy acres of nature preserves and onsite trail access,” EYA President Bob Youngentob said in a press release. The Montgomery County Civic Federation and nearby resident Robert Dyer (author of the Robert Dyer @ Bethesda Row blog) opposed the project during the appeals process because the luxury townhomes would be incompatible with the surrounding industrial uses. Auto body shops line Butler Road leading up to the property. But others, including the Little Falls Watershed Alliance, supported the project. A representative of the LFWA testified the change from block plant to townhome neighborhood would greatly improve water quality and reduce noise in the area. The townhomes will be up for sale starting next month. Renderings via EYA
