SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District announced today that its Antilles Area Office, currently located at 400 Fernandez Juncos, will temporarily relocate to the Angel Ramos Foundation-Annex Building, 383 FD Roosevelt Ave., San Juan, PR, 00917.
The Corps executed up to a 5-year lease, and plans to occupy the new space in early August 2015. The District considered a number of factors in selecting the new location including:
· ease of access to major interstate highways,
· ease of customer access to the facility,
· parking, and
· layout of the building.
“Our staff works incredibly hard every single day to deliver quality projects and programs to the people of Puerto Rico and the U.S Virgin Islands,” said Capt. Juan Cordon, chief of the Antilles’ office. “This move will give our employees the ability to continue these efforts in a modern and efficient working environment.”
The decision to relocate comes after a recent report concluded that extensive building renovations are required for the current facility. Future plans for the current facility, owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, are still under discussion.
