Bid for FBI building sets off regional competition - Article Photos 1/1

FILE - This Feb. 3, 2012, file photo shows the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) headquarters on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, which opened in 1974. The FBI's announcement that it needs a new home has touched off a virtual real estate beauty contest in the greater Washington metropolitan area, with communities around the region jockeying for the opportunity to attract the law enforcement agency, and attendant economic benefits, to their neighborhoods. The bureau wants to move more than 10,000 employees spread among leased annexes throughout the region into a secure consolidated headquarters near the highway and mass transit.
