Home Working with Section 106 ACHP Case Digest Fall 2004 District of Columbia: Transfer of the Southeast Federal Center
District of Columbia: Transfer of the Southeast Federal Center
Agency: General Services Administration
The ACHP extensively reviewed the General Services Administrations
(GSAs) draft Programmatic Agreement to address the long-term implications
of the proposed development of the Southeast Federal Center.

While the draft agreement clarified the compliance responsibilities between GSA and the developer, Forest City Works, it lacked specific mitigation measures to address the range of activities related to selecting a developer, transferring the centers 42 acres, reviewing the design, and implementing the project.
The ACHP, GSA, Forest City Works, the Washington, DC, State Historic Preservation Officer, and other consulting parties negotiated a master plan, historic preservation design guidelines, historic covenants, and a maintenance plan for the property transfer.
In August 2004, the ACHP gave GSA its final comments on the project. GSA indicated that a final draft of the agreement would be available in October 2004. For background information on this case, visit the Summer 2004 Case Digest at www.achp.gov/casessum04DC.html.
