WASHINGTON, DC-The District of Columbia is expected to propose Poplar Point to the FBI as a location for its relocated headquarters.
Poplar Point, which is currently being used by the U.S. National Park Service and the U.S. Park Police, totals 110 acres. However, approximately 70 acres are designated for use as a park, according to the District’s website.
A District of Columbia government source Thursday confirmed to the Washington Examiner that Mayor Vincent Gray plans to pitch Poplar Point to the FBI. However, Pedro Ribeiro, a spokesman for the mayor, would only say the mayor’s office would make an announcement “soon.” The city has until March 4 to make a proposal to the FBI.
