The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) may be moving to Maryland, the General Services Administration (GSA) announced on Tuesday. Two Maryland locations, both in Prince George’s County, made the FBI’s shortlist for a new consolidated headquarters. A third potential property is located in Springfield, Virginia.
The FBI, currently headquartered on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., opened its formal search for a new base of operations in November 2013. In an advertisement at the time, the FBI requested that the new location offer approximately 50 acres and accommodate 2.1 million square feet of office and parking space. The FBI is expected to bring roughly 11,000 headquarters jobs to the new location.
GSA described the Greenbelt property as a portion of a Greenbelt Metro Station site, near the intersection of Interstate 95 and Interstate 495, off Greenbelt StationExit 24. The Landover property is the site of the former Landover Mall, near the intersection of Interstate 95, Interstate 495 and Maryland Route 202.
