GSA SELECTS GREENBELT METRO STATION SITE FOR THE NEW FBI HEADQUARTERS; CITY OF COLLEGE PARK WELCOMES NEWEST NEIGHBOR
COLLEGE PARK, MD, November 9, 2023 – The City of College Park is excited that the General Services Administration has selected the Greenbelt Metro Station for the new FBI national headquarters. Located next to the City of College Park’s Hollywood neighborhood, the Greenbelt Metro Station has direct access to the City via Lackawanna Street. The new modern and secure facility is planned to house at least 7,500 employees, according to the GSA. This decision comes after a more than a decades-long selection process.
“The new FBI headquarters will be near the resources and amenities of the University of Maryland and City of College Park businesses. This is a great win for the region and I want to thank our State and Prince George’s County leaders for ensuring a fair selection process,” said Fazlul Kabir, Mayor of College Park.
“College Park is ready to welcome FBI to the region and expand the opportunities for nearby residents, visitors, and businesses. The College Park metro station, University of Maryland Discovery District, and Downtown College Park are just a metro stop away from the Greenbelt Station FBI headquarters site. We look forward to collaborating with our neighbors, federal, and state partners so the headquarters generates significant benefits to the FBI and the region,” stated Kenny Young, City Manager of College Park.
The development of the new FBI headquarters is expected to take several years.
