Trump Proposes Demolishing FBI Headquarters
Quote:The latest development in the ongoing war between the White House and the FBI is that the Trump administration is now proposing to demolish the Hoover Building on Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C., that serves as FBI headquarters, and to replace it with a new building.

It is a prime piece of real estate. Perhaps Trump can figure out a way to save the taxpayers some money by putting a hotel, condo, or office building on the property, and moving the FBI to somewhere less expensive, like the Virginia or Maryland exurbs, or to some job-thirsty rustbelt location.

Comments: Perfect time to build a northern Alaska FBI office for the special special agents.

Spread these federal agencies out. Why do they all have to be in DC area?

This. If you spread them out, you just might expose them to how the rest of the country feels and put a dent in the Beltway bureaucrat mentality.

Fully agree with this. If you spread these agencies out they could stimulate poorer states economy. Like FEMA headquarters should be in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Maybe the FBI can be moved to Chicago or Detroit - those two cities seem to be prime spots for FBI interaction anyway.

But this story says they just want to move it across the street (but perhaps make it a big smaller and split up the employees between this new building and Quantico). They have already spent quite a bit of money figuring out where to put the new headquarters. I guess if they save money on a new building then the money already spent won't have been wasted.

Eh, there's been a decade old plan to move the FBI headquarters. Why not just tear it down and build new?



Quote:The GSA and FBI have asked for full federal funding of the construction project, which is estimated to cost $3.3 billion. A move to Maryland or Virginia would have reportedly cost $3.57 billion.

The J. Edgar Hoover Building — located a block away from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC — has needed to be demolished for quite some time, according to officials.

“Crumbling facades, aging infrastructure, physical, structural and security limitations in the degraded facility all are severely impeding the FBI’s ability to meet its critical law enforcement and national security missions,” the GSA explained in a statement. “The work of the FBI requires a modern and secure headquarters with technology and equipment to support the men and women of the FBI who are dedicated to keeping our country safe.”

Hopefully they can build something that lasts longer than 40 years...

Plus the Hoover Building is butt-ugly.
