ROCKVILLE, Md. – A major office space construction boom in happening in Montgomery County.
The latest data from Transwestern Mid-Atlantic (pdf) shows that nearly 2 million square feet of office space is being built in the county — which puts it ahead of both Fairfax and Arlington counties in Virginia, but just behind D.C.
Those government-leased projects include the new campus for the National Cancer Institute, the expansion of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a new space for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
There are also private sector projects like the new headquarters for Choice Hotels in Rockville, and a new building at the Milestone Corporate Center in Germantown.
Metro Business Media points out that several projects in the county are not included in the report from Transwestern Mid-Atlantic.
