Marriott Reveals Downtown Bethesda Headquarters Site

 

In a hotly anticipated announcement, Marriott International Inc. on Friday said the company is moving its headquarters near Woodmont Triangle at the corner of Wisconsin and Norfolk avenues in downtown Bethesda.

The world’s largest hotel company is partnering with Bernstein Companies and Boston Properties to develop its $600 million campus at 7750 Wisconsin Ave., according to a morning press release. The new complex will feature a 22-story office building for Marriott’s 3,500-employee headquarters and a flagship hotel with at least 230 rooms.

The new buildings are expected to open in 2022, the announcement stated. The site is now home to the Connor Building, Blackwell Building, Bethesda Court Hotel and a surface parking lot. Tastee Diner and Woodmont Grill lie outside of the development zone and won’t be displaced by the project, said Carolyn Handlon, executive vice president of finance and global treasurer of Marriott.
