GSA is in the process of finding a new headquarters location for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI currently occupies the J. Edgar Hoover Building (JEH), located at 935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, and numerous other leased facilities that support its headquarters functions. The project involves exchanging JEH for a new facility that can accommodate the FBI’s headquarters operations and allow it to consolidate into one location.
The proposed action would allow GSA to leverage its current assets in exchange for property and services that would support federal space consolidation efforts of GSA and FBI; and allow for the Pennsylvania Avenue parcel to be conveyed to the private sector consistent with redevelopment goals for the avenue, while improving the efficiency of GSA’s and FBI’s real estate operations. This project is part of GSA’s ongoing effort to get under-performing federal facilities off of the government's books, while creating the greatest possible value for taxpayers.
In January 2013, GSA issued a Request for Information (RFI) to garner reaction from members of the development community, local and state jurisdictions, and other interested parties regarding feasibility, issues, and considerations of such a transaction structure. The 38 responses to the RFI helped to inform GSA’s strategic planning for the project.
In November 2013, the RFI was followed by a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) for sites within the National Capital Region to be used for the development of a new FBI headquarters. In addition to the sites submitted in response to the REOI, GSA also is considering government-owned sites.
