The General Services Administration has signed a pair of leases that will reduce the government real estate footprint and save the agencies more than $71 million, according to GSA.
The National Labor Relations Board will see its space will move into 143,116 square feet of space at 1015 Half Street SE in Washington in December of 2014– down from about 235,000 square feet.
The NLRB will save $4.2 million annually over the 10-year lease.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics will remain at its location in Hyattsville, Md., but will reduce its space by more than 70,000 square feet, saving about $29 million over the 15 year lease.
The General Services Administration has been aggressively using open-office layouts to reduce agency footprints and cut down reliance on costly leasing.
