Make-A-Wish Foundation Mid-Atlantic headquarters suite goes on the market in Bethesda
I noticed the prominent Make-A-Wish Foundation sign high up on the Kenwood Professional Building at 5272 River Road had been removed from the building. As of this writing, Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, Inc. is still a tenant of the building, but their current home - Suite 700 - is now listed as available for lease on August 1, 2018.

Either Make-A-Wish is downsizing to a smaller suite, or they must be relocating their headquarters. I have made an inquiry with the organization, and will provide an update as soon as I receive a response regarding their plans. Regardless, their current top-floor 9107 SF space is now available to another potential corporate tenant. The building underwent an extensive renovation of common areas, elevators and exterior paint only a year ago.
