Currently located in the J. Edgar Hoover Building on Pennsylvania Avenue, the FBI headquarters is the workplace for about 5,000 employees.

About a month ago we thought the final decision on where the new FBI headquarters would be located was to be announced in December 2016. It now looks like the decision has been pushed back to sometime in early March of 2017. What caused this delay? According to a GSA spokesperson, it was a “strong and overwhelmingly positive response from developers” to a solicitation sent out earlier in the year.

The top three locations being considered are a site by the Greenbelt Metro, the old Landover Mall and a federal warehouse right by the Franconia-Springfield Metro. The new FBI headquarters is expected to be approximately 2.1 million square feet, a small downsize from the 2.8 million square feet available in the J. Edgar Hoover Building.

Although we might not be able to help you find a 2.1 million square foot home in the area, we would love to help you with any real estate related questions!
