Renovated courtyard reopens with new seating and public art former Discovery building in Silver Spring
The Discovery, Inc. jobs are gone, but there's a new, updated courtyard now open at the former Discovery headquarters at One Discovery Place in downtown Silver Spring. Montgomery County residents will never forget how Knoxville, Tennessee successfully wooed the bulk of Discovery's operations to relocate to the Scruffy City, while the County Council was busy debating a ban on circus animals.
But you may have forgotten my 2019 report on the renovations the building's new owner, Foulger Pratt, was planning to attract new tenants to the vacant building Discovery left behind. While many were on the inside, the courtyard is the most visible update for passersby.
