The General Services Administration is seeking developers to help the agency consolidate 1,500 staffers from two buildings in Southwest Washington to the agency’s headquarters on F Street in Northwest.
GSA said Tuesday that it also wants developers to provide construction and development services to renovate three buildings at St. Elizabeths campus in Southeast Washington, the future home of the Department of Homeland Security.
Responses to GSA’s request for quotations for the Federal Triangle South project are due to the agency by May 22.
“The Federal Triangle South project is an opportunity to reexamine how the federal government uses these buildings and reassess how this space fits into the surrounding community,” said GSA Administrator Dan Tangherlini.
“This action will facilitate the city’s efforts to transform this precinct that is dominated by federal office buildings, into a mixed-use neighborhood that will both provide for a modern workplace for federal employees and create a vibrant, diverse, and special community of its own.”
GSA will trade the Cotton Annex Building and the National Capital Region Regional Office Building in Southwest Washington in exchange for the renovation works and other services.
The agency is carrying out the project to consolidate federal real estate properties and expects to receive cash payment to equalize additional exchange consideration value beyond the worth of repair projects.
