Project Construction Site
Corner of Ellsworth Dr. and Fenton St.,
Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett will be joined by County and community officials to break ground for the Veteran’s Plaza/Civic Building project in downtown Silver Spring.
When construction is completed the 1.5 acre site will contain the new 42,000 square-foot Civic Building that will be fronted by the three-quarter acre Veterans Plaza, featuring a brick surface surrounded by grass and trees. It will be the site of a memorial to veterans of all wars and host year-round activities from concerts, markets and festivals and be converted to an ice rink from November through March.
Entry to the groundbreaking site will be down the steps leading from the parking lot behind Whole Foods.
