Construction Progressing at Old MoCo Planning Headquarters on Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring

Construction is moving fast at the old Park & Planning Headquarters on Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring (aka the Montgomery Regional Office).

Two weeks ago former Silver Spring blog, My Line is Red, tweeted that construction of the upcoming MOM’s Organic Market at 8787 Georgia Avenue had started.

Today, Mike Riley (director of Montgomery Parks) posted pictures of the quick progress that has been made at the site.

Back in September, the Washington Business Journal reported that MOM’s Organic Market had signed a lease with Bozzuto Development Co. and Stonebridge to take over the previous Montgomery Planning headquarters in Silver Spring.

It will be located on the ground floor of 8787 Georgia Ave. as part of the planned redevelopment of the Montgomery County government facility.

Per WBJ, “MOM’s will anchor the redevelopment of a government facility in Silver Spring into a mix of retail and residential space that’s been in the works for nearly six years.”

At the time of the original report of the lease signing, it was expected that MOM’s would not open for 1.5-3 years. According to that time line we are just under 1-2.5 years away from opening.
