Several federal government agencies, commissions to be displaced from offices in Old Post Office building in D.C.

Feb. 9, 2012: Several federal government independent agencies and commissions are scheduled to be moved from their offices at the Old Post Office building on Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C., because real estate developer Donald Trump has entered into an agreement with the government to change the building into a luxury hotel, according to Federal Times. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) selected the Trump Organization to submit a more detailed plan to turn the building into a 250-room luxury hotel, complete with restaurants and spas. GSA officials plan to spend the next year negotiating the details on price, how the building will be used, and how the Trump Organization will preserve the historic structure. GSA officials said the agency plans to relocate the roughly 370 federal employees now working there during the next year. The National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, and several presidential commissions are current tenants. About 71 percent of the 315,000-square-foot building is occupied. Bob Peck, the Commissioner of GSA's Public Buildings Service, said in a statement that the move will save millions of dollars and convert the property to a better use of the space.
