Developer Celebrates Progress on One of First Major Projects Related to Purple Line

First tenants at Chevy Chase apartment complex expected in September 2018


Developer EYA celebrates the placing of the highest beam in The Lindley, an apartment project in Chevy Chase.


Builders have reached a significant benchmark in construction on The Lindley, an 11-story luxury apartment building that’s among the first large development projects related to the Purple Line.

Developer EYA this week celebrated the Chevy Chase apartment’s “topping out,” an industry term that refers to placing a building’s highest beam.

Company representatives noted that the Purple Line, the light-rail system that will have a stop adjacent to The Lindley, got a boost this week when a federal judge ruled against those challenging the project.

“We are excited to reach this milestone in the same week that the court has delivered a big win for the Purple Line, Montgomery County and the metro region,” said McLean Quinn, EYA’s vice president of land acquisition.

The 200-unit apartment complex will be in the 4.5-acre EYA neighborhood on Chevy Chase Lake Drive, and the developer expects the first residents to arrive in September 2018, according to a press release.

The 16.2-mile Purple Line connecting Bethesda and New Carrollton is expected to open in 2022.
