35 proposals submitted for new FBI headquarters

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Federal officials say they received 35 proposals from developers and communities interested in hosting a new headquarters for the FBI.

The General Services Administration said Wednesday that private developers are showing significant interest in building a new facility for the FBI.

The agency wants to move out of its current headquarters at the J. Edgar Hoover Building on Washington's Pennsylvania Avenue.

The House must still approve the relocation and guidelines for a new facility. Senate leaders requested that the complex be within two miles of a Metro station and within 2.5 miles of the Capital Beltway.

Sites are expected to be considered in northern Virginia. Also the District of Columbia is proposing a site along the Anacostia River. Prince George's County is proposing a site near the Greenbelt Metro station.
