The AZ Gaithersburg campus is located in Montgomery County, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. While Gaithersburg is part of a regional high technology corridor, the city has preserved its small-town appeal with smart urban development and planned communities like Kentlands and Lakelands (across the street from the core campus), and Crown Farm, all of which are walkable communities serviced by an array of public transportation options. Part of this thriving community, the Gaithersburg campus is surrounded by residential neighborhoods, schools, retail, and restaurants, and is easily accessible with a variety of transportation options.
AstraZeneca is at home in this Sustainable Maryland Certified City and shares Gaithersburg's commitment to environmental stewardship. The site offers options that simplify and facilitate sustainable transportation choices, making it easier for our employees and visitors to reach the campus and its surroundings.
