WASHINGTON, DC—A plan by the General ServicesAdministration to offer two buildings in exchange forrenovation work on two of its other properties could be delayed atthe very least.


The D.C. Preservation League has nominated theGSA's regional office building at 301 Seventh St. SW for historiclandmark status. GSA Administrator Dan Tangherlinirecently proposed giving the GSA regional office and nearby CottonAnnex at 300 12th St. SW to a developer or developers in exchangefor renovation work at GSA main headquarters property andDepartment of Homeland Security consolidation, according to theWashington Business Journal.


Another potential roadblock to any building swap deal by the GSAcomes from U.S. Rep.
