Arlington County official blasts GSA decision to move National Science Foundation to Alexandria

Arlington County Manager Barbara Donnellan penned an angry letter to Dan Tangherlini, acting administrator of the General Services Administration, regarding the GSA announced the decision to relocate the headquarters of the National Science Foundation to the Eisenhower Avenue area of Alexandria in 2017.

The GSA says the move, which the City of Alexandria subsidized, will save the federal government $65 million over the 15-year term of the lease and another $35 million in relocation costs provided by the developer, a unit of Hoffman Development Inc.

Donnellan asks that the GSA “continue negotiations” so that Arlington can be reconsidered. She said she was confident that the “stay-in-place option provides the lowest cost and highest value option for the federal government.”
