This Morning at the Willard: Public Buildings Commish on the FBI

Washington DC Office

At our Bisnow Federal Property/Public Private Partnerships Summit this morning, newly minted Public Buildings Commissioner Norman Dong says the short list of sites for the FBI that meet or exceed GSA's requirements should be released by the end of the month. Norman says GSA will also issue an RFP later this summer related to the Federal Triangle South redevelopment.

We also heard from Julia Hudson, in charge of the National Capital Region for GSA, who says that despite the agency's mandate to "freeze the footprint," there are still opportunities out there for new federal leasing. (Even frozen glaciers move. It's science.) Agencies won't stay put in one place as long as they used to, says Julia (here with Arent Fox's Jon Bouker), which could give the sluggish federal leasing market a chance to churn.

Stay tuned for more Summit coverage tomorrow.
