Discovery Communications, with its Shark Week displays and multi-channel operation, has been a staple of the Silver Spring business community since the media company moved there in 2003. The company has also been recognized as a contributor to the redevelopment of Silver Spring, whose downtown has transformed dramatically in the years since Discovery arrived. As it prepares to leave, we discuss the impact it has had on the region, what lessons can be learned from its tenure here, and what is unique about development in Silver Spring.
