Federal Triangle South is located immediately northwest of L'Enfant Plaza Metro station, generally bounded by Independence Ave to the North, 6th Street to the East, Maryland Avenue and portions of D Street to the South and 12th Street to the West. The area accommodates over 12,000 federal employees in the Cotton Annex building, the Department of Energy's Forrestal Complex, Federal Aviation Administration's Orville and Wilbur Wright Buildings, and GSA's Regional Office Building. GSA is seeking input from the development community on how the agency can leverage federal land value in exchange for more efficient and sustainable facilities that meet the needs of federal customers, while enhancing surrounding amenities.
