Erickson Living to Convert Former Marriott HQ in Maryland to 775,000 SF CCRC

BETHESDA, Md. — With Marriott International Inc. planning to relocate its Bethesda headquarters in 2022, Erickson Living has announced plans to redevelop the 775,000-square-foot building into a continuing care retirement community (CCRC).

Acquisition of the headquarters, located in Montgomery County’s Rock Spring area, was completed in December 2018. Terms of that acquisition were not disclosed.

“As a thriving urban center, this location provides an ideal opportunity to further expand our service offerings in the State of Maryland, as well as Montgomery County,” says Alan Butler, CEO of Erickson Living.

The Maryland-National Capital Parks and Planning Commission updated the master plan for the Rock Spring area of Montgomery County in 2018. While Rock Spring has been developed over the years as a suburban office park, the updated plan encourages more residential and retail uses, according to Erickson.

Erickson Living owns and/or operates 20 communities in 11 states, serving more than 27,000 residents. The company specializes in CCRCs.
