General Services Administration looks for developers to construct New FBI headquarter
A real estate developer needed for setting up the edifice of New FBI headquarter. Virginia and Maryland are competing to get the project providing land support. The Bultimore Sun has reported this recently.
The General Services Administration declared that the building will accommodate 11,000 workers. The Federal Bureau of Investigation wants to move from J. Edgar Hoover Building, a 39-year-old building in downtown Washington.
Fund crunch is also a big problem. Two sites (Greenbelt, Landover and Springfield, Va.) have primarily been selected for the site and pending for GSA’s consideration.
A development agency has asked for swapping development rights on the Hoover site in exchange of the construction of FBI headquarter.
Now there is a question that weather congress would like to spend on it or not. Earlier J. Edgar Hoover building failed to meet the demand of FBI. Here GSA’s role would be to select such as agency which could meet the FBI’s purpose.
FBI’s headquarter in Pennsylvania Avenue served the investigating agency since 1975. But the number of the agency has been increased.
