County Executive Ike Leggett has applauded the decision of the General Services Administration that will keep the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Montgomery County.
“I am pleased that the General Services Administration (GSA) has chosen Montgomery County as the location to consolidate four U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ offices. The Parklawn Drive Building is adjacent to the Twinbrook metro station and convenient to shopping and dining in the area, which is consistent with our County’s transit oriented development initiative.
“Close to 3,000 employees will eventually work in the renovated 936,000 square feet of office space. Chevy Chase-based JBG Companies will invest $270 million for renovation of the building, and the County will benefit from the additional property tax revenue generated by the expanded space.
“Montgomery County is a great place to live and work and the GSA agreed with us.”
