Not sure why Greenbelt was proposed as a potential site for FBI HQ. A better choice would've been National Harbor. It's in PG but close to FBI rank-and-file enforcement living across the Potomac. Put the Wizards/Capitals there as well and extend Metro from DC and Alexandria.

The FBI is not interested in the Greenbelt site.

I'm pretty sure they aren't interested in National Harbor either.

Most support staff would and the closest to Metro stop, all the better. I can’t blame them. The Agents viewing northern Virginia. The closest to Quantico, the better. So, is there some kind of compromise in all this? Who knows. Just staying put for now most likely.

"Sorry, Virginia: President Biden's new budget includes $3.5 billion for a new FBI HQ in suburban Maryland — and an unexpected new bureau office in the District."

https://www.axios.com/local/washingt...nbelt-maryland


"It appears funding for a new FBI headquarters in Greenbelt, Maryland is moving forward, despite an ongoing inspector general investigation looking into how Maryland was picked over Virginia."
https://www.fox5dc.com/video/1427524

We'll see if the Virginia delegation teams up with anti-FBI Congressional Republicans to block this funding in Congress. Seems like deja vu from last year's government shutdown dispute between MD-VA on this same matter.

The cost of the FBI HQ facility has risen by $1 billion to $4.5 billion and will take more than a decade to building, beginning in 2029. It appears the top brass will be staying in DC afterall.

But even in a best-case scenario, it’ll take more than a decade for FBI employees to relocate to a new suburban headquarters, according to the Biden administration’s latest plans.

The General Services Administration, according to a recently posted prospectus, expects to begin construction on the new FBI headquarters in 2029, and have FBI employees working out of the new space by 2036.

...

Subcommittee Chairman Scott Perry (R-Pa.) said the cost of a new FBI headquarters has “ballooned” from an estimated $3 billion to $4.5 billion.

Meanwhile, GSA and the FBI are looking for a federally owned site in D.C. to accommodate an additional 750-1,000 FBI personnel who would support day-to-day FBI engagement with the Justice Department, Congress and the White House.

Not surprised. With inflation, there's a lot of budget changes. One hell of a timeline though. Five years just to move dirt. I wonder if there will be a commercial developer who builds the retail/housing portions before then.

At this pace, the J. Edgar Hoover building will collapsed under its own weight before the HQ even break ground...

What a President proposes in a budget is just a funding wish list from the Executive Branch.
