TPM Readers report in from the field <$NoAd$> on Suite 300 ...
Well, since I work near to 3900 Jermantown Rd I decided to walk over there, in the snow, to check it out.
The directory on the first floor does have "United Seniors Association, Inc" as suite 450. And "O'Neill Marketing Company" as suite 300. Neither address bar seemed to be newer than the rest really.
A quick trip to the 3rd floor found that, in fact, suite 300 is just a large suite with many different companies in it. There's a central reception area and hall ways leading to doors with the names of the businesses on them.
The 4th floor had a door labeled "United Seniors Association Inc Suite 450". That's it. I assume that any sort of suite 450A would have had to been inside suite 450, as I did not see any lettered suites while I was in the building.
My best guess is that they split off some time ago and they were slow to update their website.
I work near O'Neill marketing, so I took my lunch hour to go check them out. I would call it a case of a mouse roaring.
3900 Germantown Rd is a little four story building near Fairfax City. In the lobby, on the orientation board, O'Neill is listed as occupying suite 300, as are about 25 other organizations. The building didn't look that big from the outside, so I trooped upstairs to check out suite 300.
Turns out 300 is an incubator. You know the type: start-ups go there, lease some space, share the cost of paying a receptionist, share the copier, share the coffee machine. I am not demeaning organizations that occupy such places. My former company started at one and is now doing quite well... good way of keeping down overhead.
A nice person in the elevator told me that 300 is a kind of "mish-mash" of things; people come and go all the time.
USA is indeed listed in 450, but, how can I put this? They aren't welcoming visitors.
