  1. That Fannie Mae building means they’re tearing down the WaPo building, or just renovating? Also I want to know what’s happening to the current HQ on Wisconsin Ave

  2. Hi Teresa,

    I believe the Fannie Mae building will replace the one on 15th Street NW.

    As for what will happen to the current Fannie Mae HQ, I dug up this WaPo article from January: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/digger/wp/2015/01/26/fannie-mae-to-move-to-15th-st-replacing-washington-post-headquarters/

    At the bottom of the article, it says “Fannie plans to sell its building along Wisconsin Avenue but has not begun the sales sales process,” so I think it’s a fair assumption that they will still sell it.

    Hope that helps!
