There is a very large construction project on Connecticut Avenue in Montgomery County just before the entrance to the Beltway. This site is the location of the new Chevy Chase Purple Line stop. A huge 2.2 million square feet of future development is currently under construction; it was recommended in the Chevy Chase Lake Sector Plan approved in 2013. Please join LAIGW for in depth look at the past, present, and future of Chevy Chase Lake. What began with a streetcar stop over 100 years ago is being reimagined as a new, mixed-use community. The next phase of Chevy Chase Lake will provide a range of housing opportunities as well as neighborhood retail and public space amenities to serve the broader community. This masterplan has been carefully crafted with an architectural language that seeks to respect and represent its existing community’s character and history. The meeting will include a presentation and virtual tour of the project and there will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions. The history of Chevy Chase Lake as a long-standing, transit-oriented development.How the current Chevy Chase Lake Sector Plan came to fruition through County planning efforts, development and design coordination, and a robust community engagement process which went hand-in-hand with Purple Line planning efforts.Details on the team members, partnerships, and site uses that are bringing this vision to a reality, including a mix of housing types and affordability levels plus ~100,000 sf of retail.How the initial phases of design evolved through thoughtfully applied architecture to craft a new, vibrant mixed-use community destination, while also creating the sense that the buildings have always belonged to the neighborhood.What lies ahead- insight into future phases of development and programming.
