FBI headquarters

The US General Services Administration (GSA) has issued two Requests for Information (RFIs) for two new building projects in the Washington, DC, area involving the construction of new FBI headquarters.

The first RFI is seeking proposals to redevelop an area of south-west Washington near L’Enfant Plaza, dubbed Federal Triangle South.

GSA said that it is aligning its vision for Federal Triangle South with the National Capital Planning Commission’s Southwest EcoDistrict, a sustainable community stretching from the National Mall to the Southwest Waterfront.

The project aims to reduce costs by renovating several federal buildings, developing green facilities and improved infrastructure.

The second RFI is seeking proposals for a new consolidated FBI headquarters in the Washington area.

Upon completion, the new facility will replace the FBI’s current 2.4 million ft² headquarters, the J. Edgar Hoover building.

GSA is considering the full National Capital Region, which includes the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia, for the new FBI headquarters.

GSA Acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini said that the administration is looking for new ways to save money and increase efficiency.

"An exchange of the FBI headquarters not only saves money, but it also promotes efficiency by consolidating staff into a single state-of-the-art facility, shrinking the federal real estate footprint and eliminating multiple leases," Tangherlini said.

"With Federal Triangle South, we will contribute to a more sustainable neighborhood by creating opportunities for development, while at the same time saving taxpayer dollars by redeveloping outdated and underutilized properties."

In 2011, the Government Accountability Office report estimated that a new FBI headquarters would cost $1.5bn and that it would cost $1.1bn to renovate the existing facility.
