The General Services Administration is seeking proposals for construction and development services in support of the agency’s efforts to consolidate its regional staff with headquarters and renovate four historic buildings at St. Elizabeths Campus.
GSA said Friday the services are in exchange for development rights to the GSA Regional Office Building and Cotton Annex at Federal Triangle South in Washington as part of a Section 412 exchange process under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005.
“GSA will get much needed construction development services at no costs to taxpayers, the private-sector developer will get two pieces of prime Washington, D.C., real estate, and the city will get a mixed-use development that supports its vision for a sustainable community, ” said Darren Blue, public buildings commissioner for GSA’s National Capital Region.
Shortlisted developers may submit proposals through October 16.
GSA noted that it currently manages two exchange processes in Washington as part of its exchange authority, which seeks to drive efficiency in the use of federal assets and reduce the federal footprint.
