GSA Announces Next Steps Toward Identifying Site for New Federal Courthouse

DES MOINES, Iowa—The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announced their next steps toward identifying a site for a new federal courthouse in Iowa, Sept. 27.

To ensure that GSA meets its obligation to procure a site that represents the best value to the government and the American taxpayers, GSA will conduct renewed market research within the city limits of Des Moines in an attempt to identify additional site alternatives outside the floodplain.

GSA will also proceed with due diligence activities, including further environmental studies, on the north and south of East Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway sites in Des Moines. These studies are expected to be completed in December.
