Nearly 2,100 NSF employees will relocate to Alexandria in 2017 from the agency’s current Arlington hub, according to the Washington Business Journal.

The federal government will rent the space for a rate 30 percent below the current market rate and retain $35 million in incentives, Cooper reports.

Dan Cruz, GSA spokesperson, told the Business Journal those incentives will go toward tenant improvements and relocation costs.
