What we have been anticipating for years is about to become a reality. By September 15, 2011 the law requires the implementation of the Base Realignment and Closure Act of 2005. This is a major event that will impact both relocating servicemen and women and the area surrounding Fort Belvoir.
Just two components of the 20 projects totaling approximately $4 billion dollars are the Fort Belvoir Community Hospital and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency building. Other facilities will be built or expanded to support the 19,300 military and civilian employees that are being affected. Fort Belvoir currently employs more than 22,000 civilian and military personnel. Approximately 6,400 Washington Headquarters Services personnel will be relocated to a new office building at the Mark Center in the City of Alexandria.
We know there will also be many new jobs and transferees as those wanting to be close to their government clients move to this area.
With our prime location just down the street from Fort Belvoir (in between Fort Belvoir and the Pentagon) and our years of helping with military moves, we are poised to provide lots of assistance to those coming in. As you begin your transition, don’t hesitate to contact us for local information.
