Friends of White Flint board member Brian Downie, Senior Vice President of Saul Centers and executive director Amy Ginsburg were part of the panel on the Future of Rockville Pike at the recent Bisnow conference, the Montgomery County State of the Market.
One of the hot topics of the conference was Marriott’s search for a new headquarters. County Executive Ike Leggett said at the Bisnow event, “First of all, Marriott is going to stay in Montgomery County. That is my promise.” Amy Ginsburg told the 600-person audience, “In the Pike District, Marriott will be able to make the Pike District in their own image. I think that’s a really exciting proposition for a company, to be the centerpiece of a community.”
