And just like that...

What next for those spaces that were in the running? Refocus on a different effort, or keep space vacant until there is more congressional and presidential support...4 years from now at a minimum?
Some of those companies have been waiting for a looong time. What's another 4? This does not surprise me in the least with this administration. Many things just are NOT going to happen. They are not only understaffed, morale is down at most agencies, and when they actually do nominate ppl to run the agencies most of them, at BEST, have zero govt experience and at worst, want to dismantle the agency...see Tillerson, Zinke, Perry

I think they will wait another two years to see what happens during the mid-terms. This isn't over. IN the meantime, At least for Greenbelt, nothing is stopping them from developing the mixed-use plans at the metro station. If the FBI comes it would be the second phase of that development. If not, something else will be phase two like more mixed-use. Both Greenbelt and Fairfax as still very much TODs which are hot right now.

Maybe the plan is to move it to a sane state, i.e. not MD or VA. I say put it in West Virginia or Pennsylvania.

...GSA is canceling the project, not rebidding it. That seems unlikely to change until 1. Trump is removed from office or 2. an attack on U.S. soil convinces Trump and/or Congress to actually do their job.

Maybe the plan should be to let sane people make these decisions.

What could possibly be so different about FBI HQ in WV / PA? I assure you the same people will build and work inside no matter where it is located. If this is simply the Sean Hannity talking point, dude is a total idiot.

That doesn't even make sense. What in the world is a "sane" state? I assume you mean Republican. MD has a Republican governor and VA has Republican majorities in its House and Senate chambers :/

Well this just goes to show we can't rely on the government for new development. Now can we please get the Landover Mall site redeveloped ASAP?

Maryland has to be near the bottom of states President Trump will want to help. Instead of the Purple Line, they should build a highway instead. Call it Brian Frosh Boulevard.

Why would those "sane" states want any artifacts of big government???
