Susan Reutershan and Bill Kominers Speak on How the Fillmore Came (To Be) in Silver Spring
Susan Reutershan and Bill Kominers recently participated in a Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) panel on "How the Fillmore Came (To Be) in Silver Spring." The panel, which also included David Dise from Montgomery County and Bruce Lee from Lee Development Group, discussed how a unique public-private partnership transformed the partial remains of a former J.C. Penney’s department store (including the original façade) into The Fillmore. The music, entertainment, and community use venue was approved, constructed, and opened in 18 months. The Fillmore created the foundation for the future mixed-use project that will surround the site.
Susan Reutershan and Bill Kominers are land use attorneys at Lerch, Early & Brewer in Bethesda, Maryland experienced in historic preservation issues who were intimately involved in the Fillmore project in Silver Spring, Maryland.
