New Plans Call for Building New FBI Headquarters at Current Site

The FBI’s current headquarters in Washington D.C., named after J. Edgar Hoover.

Long-stalled plans to build a new FBI headquarters outside of District limits has taken a stunning, expected turn: The General Services Administration appears to prefer building the bureau’s new home at the current site, the Washington Business Journal reports. 

The GSA faces a deadline today to submit a detailed plan to the Senate’s Committee on Environment and Public Works on efforts build a new headquarters.

But the GSA’s apparent endorsement of building on the current site is not the final word because additional appropriations would require congressional approval.

The current headquarters, built in 1974, is dilapidated and no longer useful to the FBI.

A new headquarters is expected to house the 11,000 FBI staff members who are spread across multiple locations in the region.

The General Services Association soon will begin accepting proposals to relocate FBI headquarters beginning this summer, the Kingstowne-Rose Hill Patch reports.

The FBI has received numerous preliminary proposals from surrounding cities to be home to the new FBI headquarters.

The current headquarters in Washington D.C. is outdated and crumbling, the GSA has said.

The FBI is looking for land that is close to the metro station and Beltway.

A congressional subcommittee plans to launch an investigation into the FBI’s search for a new headquarters, a move that could delay or derail the project the Washington Business Journal reports.

Some in Congress are questioning why the facility needs to be Metro accessible and how to maximize the value of the current building, the Business Journal reported.

The FBI and General Services Administration also can’t agree on wether a consolidated headquarters should be leased or purchased.

The cost for a new building would range from $1.9 billion to $3 billion., the Business Journal wrote.

 The FBI’s headquarters may be a crumbling eyesore, but it sits on prime real estate – midway between the White House and the U.S. Capitol.

With tight budgets, the federal government is hoping it can land big bucks for the space underneath the J. Edgar Hoover building to help offset the costs of building a more modern facility in a yet-to-be-determined location, the Associated Press reports.

The General Services Administration, which oversees all federal buildings, is asking developers to envision building a new headquarters in exchange for the headquarters and its land, the AP reported.

We’re testing the marketplace,” the GSA’s acting administrator, Dan Tangherlini, told the AP. “We think we have very valuable property. How much is it worth?”
