By now you know, Ft. Meade is growing, thanks to BRAC. The base hosted a tour of its 5,000 acre campus to highlight $500 million in new office space that’s being built. That’s where the Pentagon is sending three agencies. By this time next year the base will have another 5,600 new jobs.

DISA’s million-square-foot headquarters is the largest. The moves are expected to be completed by July.
