From www.bizjournals.com, although the article is 6½ years old now:
The future home of the U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division is now under construction at 1111 18th St. NW, where a four-story, 100,000-square-foot office building was demolished to prepare for the new structure.
The Secret Service has committed to a 20-year lease of the entire 72,250-square-foot building, which will be six stories high, have windows on three sides and include two levels of underground parking. Construction is under way and is expected to be completed by June 2000.
Lack of space at 13th and L streets -- the present location of the Uniformed Division -- made the move necessary.
"The old building needed expansion, but that structure couldn't accommodate the additions necessary," said Art Turowski, deputy assistant regional administrator for the General Services Administration.
The structure incorporates the option of someday adding five stories to its height and more than doubling the square footage to 137,750 square feet, said Steve Lustgarten, executive vice president of Blake Real Estate.
Blake, which worked with the Secret Service on a previous project, is serving as developer and property manager for the building.
"We designed an expandable building," said Lustgarten. "We're constructing the parking garage with an underground link to another parking facility on the same block, so that also can be expanded someday if needed."
