SILVER SPRING, MD–Much to Montgomery County’s sorrow, Discovery Communications has announced it will relocate its global headquarters to New York City next year. It plans to sell its headquarters in downtown Silver Spring and has retained JLL’s Capital Markets Group  to market the 540,000-square foot building. Some jobs will remain in Maryland, according to a statement by George Leventhal, an at-large member of the Montgomery County Council, “but the number is not known right now.”
