Building for the Future: Development Projects

A number of projects which are underway within the National Capital Region (NCR) offer unique development opportunities for the private sector to collaborate with the public sector to develop federally owned land for private sector use.

Southeast Federal Center (SEFC)

The Southeast Federal Center (SEFC) is located in the District’s Southeast neighborhood, within a mile of the U.S. Capitol Building. The enactment of the Southeast Federal Center Public-Private Development Act of 2000, Public Law 106-407, has given GSA special authority to adopt innovative, flexible approaches for working with the private sector to develop the SEFC site. By leveraging the private sector’s creativity, experience, and resources, GSA transformed the SEFC site into an asset where office workers, residents and visitors can live and work. The result is an exciting mixture of land uses including residential, commercial, and office space replete with a waterfront park, open spaces and innovative design.

St. Elizabeths West

GSA obtained approval for the Master Plan in January 2009. St. Elizabeths West Campus will be a high security campus for federal agencies.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Headquarters Consolidation

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Headquarters will undergo consolidation to accommodate growth from 7,720 to 8,889 employees.
