FOX D.C. Properties Are On the Move

By Chris Ariens 

Fox’s owned properties in Washington, D.C. are moving out of the district and into Maryland.

WTTG and WDCA have signed a Letter of Intent with Carr Properties to relocate to a new building at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Elm St. in Bethesda, Maryland.

“We are thrilled to move our facilities to Montgomery County, MD into what will be a grade A complex developed by Carr Properties and we thank the State of Maryland and Montgomery County for making this possible,” said Fox vp and General Manager Patrick Paolini. “This will be a state-of-the-art facility that will keep us in the heart of the Washington, D.C. metro area and allow us to better serve our community.”

Right now the stations are in a facility about 2 miles south on Wisconsin Ave., which WTTG has called home since 1966.

The studio and office space will occupy about 57,500 square feet on the 6th floor of a new commercial and residential building on the site of the Apex office complex. Carr Properties is demolishing the current building (below) and constructing a new 290-foot tall tower. Move in is set for 2021.
