The General Services Administration plans to release a solicitation soon to redevelop the agency’s regional headquarters and the Energy Department’s vacant Cotton Annex facility in southwest Washington.

GSA administrator Dan Tangherlini said in a hearing of the Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee that oversees public buildings Tuesday that the solicitation is part of the agency’s larger effort to redevelop several buildings in that area — including the Federal Aviation Administration and Energy Department headquarters.

On Dec. 3, GSA issued a request for information that received 10 responses, Tangherlini said.

He said GSA will focus on only two facilities at first because they are the easiest to make available for development. The Cotton Annex is vacant and GSA owns and occupies its regional headquarters.

“We think there are dramatic opportunities for economic development,” Tangherlini said.

He said congressional budget cuts hurt GSA’s ability to maintain its buildings and the agency is working on exchanging older facilities for new ones to help offset growing costs.
