Construction has started on a new 111-unit apartment complex known as the Crescent at Chevy Chase, built on the former site of the 65-year-old Newdale Mews Apartments, a garden apartment complex in Chevy Chase, Md.

The apartment building at 3929 Landmark Ct. is next to the upcoming Purple Line and the Capital Crescent Trail. Residents will be able to walk to the new Chevy Chase Lake Town Square as well as restaurants, shops and Rock Creek Park.

The development will include a new path for bicyclists and pedestrians connecting the Capital Crescent Trail and Connecticut Avenue. Residents can walk or ride a bike to Bethesda.

Rents have yet to be determined for the one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Each will have a patio or balcony, and the upper-level units will have a view of the Columbia Country Club’s golf course.

Planned building amenities include a roof terrace, a lobby that connects the two buildings, co-working spaces, a clubroom, an entertainment kitchen, a pet spa and a wellness studio with an indoor weight and cardio center and an outdoor fitness patio. The building will also include several outdoor gathering spaces and community bikes available only to residents.

The apartments have been owned by the Bindeman family since the mid-1970s. Rob Bindeman of Landmark Realty is developing the new apartments in two connected buildings designed by architect Jon Eisen of the Eisen Group, with interior designs by Bandura Design.

As part of the conversion, Newdale Road was renamed Landmark Court. The Crescent at Chevy Chase is anticipated to open in summer 2023.

As part of the Montgomery County Moderately Priced Dwelling Unit (MPDU) program, some of the apartments at the Crescent at Chevy Chase will be reserved for the MyPad Program of the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes, a local special needs organization.
