Chevy Chase Lake: Creating a Community Gathering Space For All
On December 13, 2018, Bozzuto, The Chevy Chase Land Company, its shareholders, investors and board members, as well as project designers and architects, gathered to mark the construction milestone for the future home of Chevy Chase Lake, one of the area’s most highly-anticipated developments.
Located at the end of the once-popular Rock Creek Railway streetcar line, the area was named “Chevy Chase Lake” for the artificial lake that was formed when Coquelin Run was dammed in order to provide water to cool the turbines that powered the Connecticut Avenue streetcar, which operated from 1892 until 1935—an early example of a transit-oriented development. No longer the end of line today, with the construction of an MTA Purple Line station on site, the new community will honor the roots of the original neighborhood. Previously, the lake afforded people a place to gather and picnic. Today, the plaza, public green and retail will provide a new town square for the area.
For the past 30 years, Bozzuto has been on a mission to create homes and communities that offer people sanctuary, and this development project is no exception. From the moment Bozzuto was awarded the contract of this one-of-a-kind development the team has made every decision with the customer in mind.
“At Bozzuto, we are relentlessly driven by a desire to create sanctuary for those we serve — places that inspire and evoke a sense of belonging.” — Toby Bozzuto
“Chevy Chase Lake is a significant development due to both the economic impact and opportunities for deeper community connections. We are honored to have been selected as partner by The Chevy Chase Land Company,” said President and CEO Toby Bozzuto. “At Bozzuto, we are relentlessly driven by a desire to create sanctuary for those we serve—places that inspire and evoke a sense of belonging. Chevy Chase Lake will become a vibrant, communal gathering space for the neighborhood, Montgomery County and the Greater Washington area.”
The first phase of the project will include two buildings oriented around a neighborhood square. The buildings are both six stories and will include 280 rental apartments and 65 for-sale condominiums by Bozzuto Homes. Anchored by a yet-to-be-named grocery store, the first and second phases of the community will be further supported by 100,000 square feet of vibrant, neighborhood-serving retail and restaurants.
