A June 21 groundbreaking ceremony will mark the beginning of construction on the Marriott International headquarters in downtown Bethesda.

Gov. Larry Hogan and other state and local officials are expected to attend the invitation-only event, celebrating the project to build the hotel company’s $600 million campus, a project spokeswoman said.

The development team involved in the effort has already begun to prepare the site along Wisconsin Avenue, south of Norfolk Avenue. In coming weeks, construction crews will tear down the Bethesda Court Hotel, Blackwell Building and the former Tako Grill.

Marriott International representatives have said they want to move the company’s headquarters from Fernwood Road to the new campus by July 2022. The plan is to construct a 300-foot-tall office tower for about 3,500 Marriott employees and a 238-room flagship hotel just to the south.
