Development Update: Week of October 15, 2018

October 12th, 2018

Marriott International Headquarters

Week of October 15, 2018:

The construction phase of the Marriott International Headquarters development site is underway. Equipment and material deliveries, environmental and safety controls, excavation, hauling and drilling operations continue as trucks enter and exit the site along Woodmont Avenue. This week, workers continue drilling of piles to support the excavation of the site. Along Woodmont Avenue in front of Garage 11, the restoration of pavers and concrete along the sidewalk and street continues and will be completed next week.

We remind residents and businesses in the surrounding areas that there are several other unrelated projects underway near the Marriott development site. We are aware of utility service outages that occurred recently, including disruptions to power, signaling and natural gas, however, these are completely unrelated to the Marriott project. Any anticipated and scheduled outages required for the Marriott project will occur at a later date and will be expressly communicated with all stakeholders beforehand. Outages will be announced via these emails, as well.
