GSA to Conduct Environmental, Transportation, Historic Preservation Studies for New Labor Dept HQ

The General Services Administration plans to conduct environmental, transportation and historic preservation studies at candidate sites for the Labor Department‘s future headquarters.

GSA said Thursday the studies will inform the government’s decision and aid compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act and the National Historic Preservation Act.

GSA shortlisted three Washington, D.C.-based sites for DOL’s future headquarters that include NOMA at the intersection of North Capitol Street and New York Avenue; Capitol Riverfront at the intersection of M Street and South Capitol Street; and Poplar Point in Anacostia.

DOL’s current headquarters at 200 Constitution Avenue NW is more than 40 years old and requires infrastructure upgrades such as modern heating, electrical, plumbing and elevator systems.

The government looks to develop a modern work environment, address taxpayer costs and foster economic redevelopment at the current site and at a new location.
