Celebrate spring on the Bethesda Metro Center plaza this Wednesday for Earth Day
The event is part of Clark's campaign to promote its vision for the plaza's future use. Brookfield Properties has its own plan, and holds development rights for the space. Clark has emphasized that its plan would create a larger green space, would not have the high-rise building Brookfield proposes, and would feature outdoor movies, live music, ping pong, a splash fountain, bocce ball and other activities. There would also be room for a retail or food vendor. Its park would be more visible from Wisconsin Avenue and East-West Highway, without Brookfield's proposed high-rise in the way, it argues.
Clark's headquarters is at the Bethesda Metro Center, in the Clark Building.
