We have heard so much about Base Realignment Closures Act (BRAC). 

On April 16, 2008 a milestone was reached - Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) broke ground on the new facility which will consist of seven buildings encompassing approximately 1.1 million square feet at a cost of about $442 M.

The headquarters building is slated to ready for occupancy by October 2010 and the remaining buildings by September 2011.

Approximately 4,300 DISA Jobs will relocate to Ft. Meade from Northern Virginia  during the next 3 years.

Hensel Phelps Construction, the winning company selected by The Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District --stated that more than 200 local and national companies will be involved in construction of the new DISA complex.   

Quick take -- Housing inventory is about supply and demand.   

What do you think will happen in three years with the influx of thousands of people relocating?
