Rod Lawrence of the JBG Companies showed plans for the Twinbrook area.

Officials from the General Services Administration and the JBG Companies visited NIAID recently to provide an update on 5601 Fishers Lane, the future home of approximately 2,000 institute employees.

The new 10-story building will enable NIAID to consolidate and move staff from a handful of buildings in the Rockledge area of North Bethesda to a single, state-of-the-art facility near the Twinbrook Metro station in Rockville.

Eric Albrecht, a GSA project executive, discussed construction of the new building, which will meet all government standards for water and energy efficiency, building ventilation and lighting and material reuse and recycling. Rod Lawrence, a partner with JBG, the developer of the building, showed the audience plans for the Twinbrook area, which include renovations of the HHS Parklawn Bldg., new bike paths that connect to Rock Creek Park and an eastward extension of Montrose Parkway toward Veirs Mill Rd.

NIAID will begin moving into 5601 Fishers Lane in early 2014.
