Marriott announced that it has signed agreements with the Bernstein Cos. and Boston Properties for the new corporate headquarters and flagship Marriott Hotel at 7500 Wisconsin Ave.

Construction at 4747 & 4749 Bethesda Ave

Construction at 4747 & 4749 Bethesda Ave has stopped on the downtown Bethesda location for gourmet grocer Dean & DeLuca, and the store’s projected opening has been delayed to 2019. Developer JBG Smith had originally estimated the store would open in the fall of 2017. Progress on the space has halted because Dean & DeLuca is working on changes to the store design. The store project at 4749 Bethesda Ave. is part of JBG Smith’s overhaul of the area near the intersection of Bethesda and Woodmont avenues. The company is also developing a 14-story building at 4747 Bethesda Ave. that will provide about 280,000 square feet of office space and 7,000 square feet of retail space.
