It’s no secret to anyone in the beltway that 42-year-old, 2.4-million-gross-square-foot J. Edgar Hoover building on Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington D.C. has seen better days. Indeed, it’s literally falling apart, crumbling from the outside in.
That’s why, after a three-year search for a new site with three potential sites identified, the General Services Administration is planning to begin construction on new headquarters building in 2017.

In addition, $1.4 billion in funding is expected to be included in FY 2017 budget for the building.
