While Centex may have recently pulled back from residential construction in Silver Spring when it put its Cityhomes project at 1200 East-West Highway on hold, that doesn’t seem to have affected the company’s drive for office development in town. Centex has started construction on an $87 million office complex at the FDA’s new campus in north Silver Spring (White Oak) at 10903 New Hampshire Avenue, where the Federal agency is consolidating all its suburban sites (Centex has already worked on three other pieces of the complex). This new six-story, 393,000-sf building - scheduled for completion in early 2009 – will include office space, conference rooms, and a 150-person conference center. The building is being designed by KlingStubbins in partnership with RTKL.
