GSA Stimulus list: $149M for Portland
Portland Business Journal
General Services Administration plans to spend more than $149 million of its stimulus funding for government buildings on three projects in Oregon.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, signed by President Barack Obama in February, calls for major new construction and energy efficient modernization of federal office buildings, courthouses and land ports across the country. Of the total $5.5 billion, GSA is planning to put $4.27 billion toward “high performance green building” modernization and improvement.
The Oregon projects:
• Portland’s Edith-Green Wendell Wyatt Federal Building, 1220 S.W. Third Ave., will receive $133 million. The building is named in honor of former Oregon U.S. Representatives Edith Green and Wendell Wyatt.
• Portland’s Bonneville Power Administration Building, 905 N.E. 11th Ave., $6.6 million.
• The David J. Wheeler Federal Building in Baker, $9.8 million.
The list of projects was first obtained earlier this week by the Washington Business Journal, an affiliated publication of Portland Business Journal. Click the link for a list of all GSA projects, as submitted to Congress.
