Naval District Washington proposes to obtain approximately six acres of land at the Southeast Federal Center (Parcels E1, E2, E3, and E42) to improve the overall antiterrorism (AT) posture of the Washington Navy Yard (WNY), Washington, District of Columbia (D.C.). Encroachment at the WNY is an immediate concern because of proposed incompatible private development currently scheduled and approved for construction on the SEFC E Parcels, adjacent to the northwest perimeter of the WNY.
By obtaining the SEFC E Parcels, the Navy would:
- Improve the WNY AT posture by reducing the encroachment threat posed by planned, private development on the SEFC E Parcels.
- Protect mission-critical activities conducted at the WNY from visual surveillance, and acoustic and electronic eavesdropping.
- Enhance the overall safety of personnel, facilities, and infrastructure at the WNY.
The Navy is considering three alternative uses for the acquired property: construction of a relocated Navy Museum, construction of administrative facilities, or maintaining the status quo (no new development).
