Foreign Missions Center
The Department now owns approximately 32 acres (13.22 hectares) of the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center in the northern portion of the District of Columbia, near the border with Silver Spring, Maryland (at the intersection of 16th Street, NW, and Alaska Avenue, facing Rock Creek Park). The Department intends to redevelop this property into a chancery center called the Foreign Mission Center (FMC). The FMC will be similar to the Department’s International Chancery Center, located in the District of Columbia near the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Van Ness Street.
The vision for the FMC master plan is to reinforce existing cultural and natural landscapes, reuse key historic structures, and respect existing formal building arrangements.
