Bethesda Marriott headquarters site revealed (Photos)
The $600 million project gives the already-Bethesda-based hotel giant the high-visibility site on Wisconsin Avenue it sought, as well as easy access to Metro. Both the 22-story headquarters and hotel are expected to deliver in 2022.
While the hotel will have 8000 SF of meeting and event ballroom space, as well as ground floor and rooftop dining options, there is no word yet as to whether Marriott will offer any of its Hot Shoppes favorites such as the Mighty Mo. The Marriott Burger will be a sure bet, however.
Eight-hundred garage parking spaces will be augmented by leased spaces in the nearby Woodmont Corner Garage 11. The chosen location is currently home to the Connor Building and Bethesda Court Hotel.
“Montgomery County has been Marriott International’s home for more than 60 years, and we take great pride in the strong relationships we’ve developed and the contributions we have made as a committed community partner,” Carolyn Handlon, Executive Vice President Finance & Global Treasurer for Marriott International. said in a statement this morning “That’s a tradition—and promise to the community—that started with Marriott’s founders 90 years ago. We look forward to continuing that legacy as we create our new, 21st century home in downtown Bethesda and continue our work as the world’s largest hotel company.”
