Two sites in Prince George's County and one in Fairfax are under consideration for the new headquarters of the FBI.
Two sites in Maryland and one in Virginia are on the short list for the new FBI headquarters.
A joint panel of the FBI and General Services Administration has named three potential sites for the new headquarters: two in Prince George's County and one in Fairfax County.
Officials in both Maryland and Virginia have been in fierce competition for several years to get the new FBI headquarters built within their state's borders, and in the District, where the agency's central office is currently located, city leaders like Eleanor Holmes Norton have argued it would be foolish to move the nation's top investigators away from the power players at the Capitol and the White House.
The proposed spots for the new FBI headquarters include the Greenbelt Metro Station, the former Landover Mall and a warehouse complex in Springfield.
The GSA will now start to assess the environmental impact of building on the three sites, take comments from the public and solicit bids from potential developers.
