The National Capital Planning Commission has approved the preliminary site and building plans the General Services Administration and U.S. Institute of Peace submitted for separate facility rehabilitation projects in Washington.
NCPC said Thursday it concurs with GSA’s preliminary plans to redevelop the Center Building on St. Elizabeths West Campus as the new headquarters of the Department of Homeland Security.
The commission also recommends the integration of a landscape plan and structural design elements with the proposed restoration and replacement work.
USIP can also move forward with its planned expansion to Potomac Annex buildings 6 and 7 for additional office, classroom and event space, NCPC said.
According to the commission, the approved work includes new construction and site improvements.
