The Lindley, a high-rise apartment building in Chevy Chase, received an award from the Urban Land Institute’s Terwilliger Center for Housing for its commitment to affordable housing.

The institute announced in a press release last week that the apartments received the Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing award.

According to the press release, the apartments are a partnership between Bethesda-based developer EYA, the Housing Opportunities Commission [HOC] and the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation.

Of the 200 units in the building, 80 are designated as income-restricted, according to the press release. Those units include some for residents earning less than half of the area’s median income and others for workforce housing. All three-bedroom units are income restricted.

“The project is innovative on many fronts. It is mixed-income in one building; proximate to the Purple Line, retail amenities and good schools; and is a public-private partnership in which HOC owns the building. Innovation and good partnership won this award,” EYA President McLean Quinn wrote in the press release.
