The original bidders will lick there wounds and resubmit their bids. Its too much money on the table for them not to. For most contractors/businesses delays are par for the course.

Agreed w/US. These developers have owned this land for decades. What's another few years? Congress has mandated GSA give them a plan in 120 days so that's what--the end of the year right? Congress always finds the money so idk what the heck GSA is talking about.

Not new about the FBI exactly, but news about one of these sites

TSA being built on the Springfield site, that leaves just the 2 PG sites if they ever restart the search

Hmmmmm. SO they halt the FBI move and allow the TSA move. Something doesn't smell right here. I believe the FBI move was way more necessary than the new TSA headquarters. But that's just me.

Perhaps this is a silver lining for the 2 PG sites if they do pick up the search after Trump resigns or is impeached.

The FBI top level doesn't want to leave DC.
Move the labs and pretty much anything else out to the burbs or farther...
but the HQ people want the DC life -- and proximity to everything else.

Do you have an evidence at all or are you pulling this out of your butt? Common sense says most of "the FBI top level" lives in the suburbs, anyways.

Thank you, how many of us commenting here on C-D have had in depth conversations with "FBI top level" employees?

Supposition but an entirely reasonable one (again imo).

Regardless of where they sleep at night or where their kids go to school...
working downtown, being downtown, on a daily basis is objectively more appealing.

I'd argue that it is subjective. After all, people don't work outside on the street. In addition, people with families don't necessarily hang out in the city after work. They have families to go home to. ANd not everyone has the time or the money to filter outside for lunch in the very expensive restaurant scene downtown. You'd be surprised at how many office workers eat inside their own offices; especially those with cafeterias or food courts.

So, which aspect of working downtown is appealing to a majority of FBI workers?
