Loudoun submits eight sites for new FBI headquarters
- February 27, 2013
The Loudoun County Department of Economic Development has submitted eight sites in the county as potential locations for a new FBI headquarters.
The Loudoun sites were presented in response to a request for information from the U.S. General Services Administration. The FBI headquarters is currently located in Washington, D.C.
The sites are located on or near the future path of the Metrorail Silver Line, in an area that stretches west from Washington-Dulles International Airport to the last Loudoun Metro station in Ashburn.
“These greenfield sites offer the lowest cost per square foot, and the highest flexibility, of any sites under consideration for the new FBI headquarters,” Scott York, chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, said in a statement.
The new FBI site will require at least 40 to 55 acres for a 2.1 million square-foot facility for 11,000 employees. Loudoun has more than 1,400 acres of available land near the metro rail route.
