Default Exclusive: GSA may keep FBI headquarters at current site

Quote:
A new plan for the FBI headquarters is emerging: The General Services Administration appears to be leaning toward keeping the agency at the site of the J. Edgar Hoover Building on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The GSA is said to have endorsed the current location, across the street from the Trump International Hotel, as its preferred alternative, two sources familiar with the agency's thinking said. Today is the deadline for the GSA to submit a detailed plan to the Senate's Committee on Environment and Public Works on how it expects to restart the search for a new headquarters.

While this plan isn't final, I think it's all but certain that they will remain in their current location/building for quite a while now and just deal with structural issues as they occur. This may finally provide closure to Fairfax, PG, DC, and developers who were heavily involved/invested in the relocation process.

I don't think that will play out for a few reasons. One, it would have been a colossal waste of money in the 10+ years they started the whole relocation effort. Not only on the Fed side, but for DC, MD, and VA trying to prep sites, holding off less prominent developments in hopes of landing the FBI, road improvements, etc.

Second, it lessens the credibility of the GSA. Can you imagine the GSA launching yet another site search for another ten years and saying, "No. For real. We mean it this time." Nah. If I were governors and county executives, I'd be less gung-ho the next go around. I'd probably have a developer take all the risk. Or at least have no bidding process. Have the GSA just pick the site without the whole regional competition exercise. Just come out and say we are moving this agency here.

Third, the Maryland delegation may have issues with that as well. Some of them are high ranking.

Lastly, this smells of Trump. "Across from the Trump hotel." How convenient. He's already being sued by Maryland for his HOtel in DC.

To see how absurd the answer was going to be.
