White Flint Mall Redevelopment
White Flint Mall redevelopment took another step forward last week. As we’ve reported, Lord & Taylor filed for an injunction last year to halt the revelopment of the mall property. This was denied in December and Lord & Taylor filed an appeal. That appeal hit a snag last week when a federal judge upheld the original denial, clearing the way for White Flint Mall to proceed. According to Washington Business Journal: “Judge Roger Titus, in a Feb. 7 ruling, said Lord & Taylor failed to show that it would ‘suffer irreparable injury’ if its request for a temporary halt to development was not granted. In addition, Titus said Lord & Taylor waited too long to request an injunction in the case.” Read the full article by clicking here.
FDA Moving Workers to White Flint
The Washington Business Journal also reports that the White Flint district can expect another 1,000 workers this summer. The FDA will be moving a complement of its workforce into Three White Flint, the new building constructed by LCOR on Marinelli Road. Originally constructed for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the building has failed to fill out as projected. It is located between the Metro Station and the Metro garage; it’s one of the most central White Flint district locations. Four floors of the building will be used to consolidate FDA employees from other sites around Montgomery County. Read the full article by clicking here.
