Renard Development Company and Related Cos. have revealed their plans for a site at the Greenbelt Metro in an effort to secure the FBI, which announced that it is considering moving its headquarters from the District to either Greenbelt, Landover, or Springfield. Greenbelt Station was recently shortlisted by the General Services Administration for the FBI headquarters solicitation, according to a GlobeSt.com report, and the partnership is hoping to set itself apart from its rivals in Landover and Springfield by releasing its plans prior to selection.
The 78-acre site near Interstates 95 and 495 and exit 24 in Greenbelt, Maryland would include a secured campus for the FBI as well as a 300-room hotel and conference center and additional office, residential and retail uses. Renard's design would pair a secure headquarters complex of five buildings with a mixed-use development of five additional buildings accessible to the public, all served by the Greenbelt Metro station, according to a Washington Business Journal article. The FBI employees would have their own parking garage, complete with solar panels on the roof, while current metro parking and Kiss and Ride facilities would be replaced with a parking complex next to the Metro entrance.
