Defense Workers Shuffled

While the Pentagon is the largest office building in the world, there are a lot of defense workers that don’t actually work in the Pentagon, but in rented office space all over Northern Virginia. Of course, due to a new DoD regulation, they may well be moving soon. The new reg says that any building with in which DoD staff works that is not on a military base must be a bizarre and odd 82 feet from the road, which eliminates much of their Northern Virginia space. Oops. New office space out beyond the beltway is becoming more and more likely for the DoD. Of course, this just on the heels of an article about the recovery of the Northern Virginia Commerical Real Estate.

Oops.

    Blast radius, right?

    Exactly, blast radius, but why 82 feet? Why not 100? 50? Why 82?

    They probably measured the distance from the Pentagon to the parking lot curb and set that as the standard. Or something whacky and non-sensical like that.

    No, I don’t think that’s it… they recently finished diverting Rt. 110 so that it would pass more than 82 feet from the Pentagon, and now trucks are allowed to drive on it again.
