Beginning in late October, Marriott International Inc., says they will lay off over 600 employees at its headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland.

In an email to E.W. Scripps, a spokesman for the hotel chain said 673 employees would be laid off.

The spokesman added that employees that were furloughed would be back at the end of September.

In 2018, Marriott began construction on its new headquarters and hoped to relocate by early 2022, the company said in a press release.

The company currently has over 3,500 employees working at its headquarters.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the old building will be turned into a senior living center after Erickson Living bought it.
