County Executive Marc Elrich shared his exciting vision and plans for a bioscience and quantum computing center located at the White Flint metro station.
The county has signed an MOU (memorandum of understanding) with WMATA to develop the empty parcel right by White Flint metro station into a campus that reflects Montgomery County’s strength as the epicenter of life sciences and coronavirus research. Mr. Elrich noted that he’s been in serious conversations with multiple universities to be partners in this project, as well as with the governor, who is supportive of this project. They hope to build this campus quickly, within a few years.
To refresh your memory, this is the grassy site that sits between Rockville Pike, Old Georgetown Road, Harris Teeter, and Marinelli Road.
Below are some of the slides that the County Executive shared last night at our online community meeting. You can see the entire slide deck here.
