WASHINGTON, DC—The General ServicesAdministration is expected to announce its short list ofpossible sites for a new headquarters for the FederalBureau of Investigation.


The GSA received proposals from developers and local governmentsin the surrounding region for the 2.1-million-square-foot FBIrequirement, including proposals regarding sites at the parking lotarea at Greenbelt Metro station, public and private land inSpringfield, the former Landover Mall, and the Southeast D.C.waterfront parcel Poplar Point, according to the WashingtonPost.


A new wrinkle in the decision-making process by GSA couldinclude a preferred 350-foot security setback around the FBIbuildings, which could doom some proposals.


Sources tell the newspaper that the GSA is considering theArmed Forces Retirement Home off of North CapitolStreet as a possible FBI headquarters site; and the eastern portionof the former Walter Reed Army Hospital, which isstill owned by the federal government. The GSA is expected to makeits final choice late next year. See story in the Washington Post.
