(Updated 4:50 p.m.) The American Physical Therapy Association‘s (APTA) move to Potomac Yard is scheduled to be completed next week with a ribbon-cutting and grand opening.
The new headquarters at 3030 Potomac Avenue has been in the works since 2018 and was one of the early moves to relocate closer to the Potomac Yard Metro station. The ribbon cutting is scheduled — virtually — for Friday, Jan. 15 at 9:30-10:30 a.m and can be viewed on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
The APTA represents 100,0000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and students, according to their website. The planned APTA opening was one of the bright spots for local business leaders to look forward to amid a difficult year.
The move isn’t too far from their old headquarters in Old Town, at 1111 N. Fairfax Street, which developers are now planning to convert into a mixed-use development.
