(Washington, DC) – The District Office of Property Management (OPM) today released a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) seeking offers for the sublease, with option to purchase, for 225 Virginia Avenue, SE, just south of the Southeast Expressway within walking distance of the new Nationals Park. The lease was negotiated by the previous administration to house various relocated functions of the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), including the First District Headquarters and evidence warehouse.
“This is a very attractive opportunity," said Robin-Eve Jasper, Acting Director of the Office of Property Management. “The property sits at the head of Canal Block Park in the heart of the exciting new Capitol Riverfront neighborhood, close to Capitol Hill.” The site, about 97,000 sq. ft., is also within walking distance to two Metro stations with great visibility from I-395, Director Jasper added.
UPDATE: Responses to the RFEI are due by 12 noon (EDT) on October 15, 2008. Additional information is available on the OPM website at opm.dc.gov and by contacting Lottie Carpenter.
