NGA Finalizes St. Louis Site as New West Headquarters Campus

NGA-logoRobert Cardillo, director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, has signed a record of decision that finalizes a site in St. Louis as NGA’s next headquarters site for western region operations headquarters.

The agency said Thursday Next NGA West will be located at the corner of north Jefferson and Cass avenues and was chosen after the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a final environmental impact statement in April that was followed by a one-month extended comment period.

“When determining where our next west headquarters would be located, I considered a number of factors, but most importantly, our mission,” said Cardillo.

He added the technological and professional environment that surrounds the future site of the west headquarters could support NGA’s mission to develop relevant geospatial intelligence technology for its clients.

NGA noted the selection process began in 2012 and involved planning studies and economic analysis that led the agency to decide on a new facility rather than a renovation of its current 3200 South 2nd Street and Arsenal Street site.
