A development that will house around 3,000 federal employees at theÂ formerÂ National Geospatial-Intelligence AgencyÂ headquarters in Bethesda, Md., has taken a further step towards completion,Â Daniel J. SernovitzÂ of the Washington Business Journal reported Monday.
Employees of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which is working with the Army Corps of Engineers on the multi-building construction, and other intelligence gathering agencies will ultimately work at the $300 million “intelligence campus.”
If all approvals are received, work will occur over two phases. Â Sernovitz writes that the National Capital Planning Commission has approved final details of the first phase that covers 12 acres of land.
The second phase has yet to receive necessary approval from the comission. Work on the first phase at 4600 Sangamore RoadÂ is underway, according to the report.
NCPC Executive DirectorÂ Marcel AcostaÂ made the approval official on Sept. 28 for site security, lighting and landscaping.
