Planners Envision Chevy Chase Lake Sector Development
County planning staff presented the planning board with drawings of what the Chevy Chase Lake sector could look like if built up according to staff-recommended densities and heights, or according to property owners' requested densities and heights.
At a Sept. 6 Montgomery County Planning Board work session, county planning staff presented drawings of what the Chevy Chase Lake sector could look like if built up according to staff recommendations for height and density.
Planning staff also presented drawings illustrating what the sector could look like if built up according to the heights and densities requested by property owners in the Chevy Chase Lake sector.
Property owners—the Chevy Chase Land Company, the Housing Opportunities Commission (which owns the Chevy Chase Lake Apartments), the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the owners of the Newdale Mews Apartments along Newdale Road—all have asked for additional building density and height, according to the staff's work session presentation.
