New Proposal Calls for Building New FBI Headquarters in Downtown Washington D.C.

The FBI has received at least 35 proposals so far to relocate the FBI’s headquarters, and most are in the suburbs.

But the Washingtonian reports that one plan would keep the headquarters in downtown Washington near the Union Station.

The proposal by Republic Properties and renowned architect Arthur Cotton Moore calls for a 2.1 million-square-foot building bordered  by North Capitol Street, Massachusetts Avenue, Northwest, and New Jersey Avenue.

The property is currently a parking lot for the Government Printing Office, the Washingtonian reported.

The news is good for many agents who wanted the convenience of being in downtown D.C.

The FBI said its current headquarters is insufficient and flawed.

It’s unclear whether the federal government will decide which proposal to select.
