International Spy Museum Picks New Location at L'Enfant Plaza

The International Spy Museum's lease at 800 F Street NW will end in 2017, and all eyes are set on L'Enfant Plaza for the next location. According to Washington Business Journal, the Museum is considering a 100,000-square-foot, six-story building at 900 L'Enfant Plaza. The $100 million building features three times the special event space the current location has, a rooftop terrace, open air plaza, and expanded exhibit space. Whether or not the L'Enfant Plaza location is the final choice is still up in the air as Museum officials hope to keep their options open in case the Commission of Fine Arts doesn't approve their plans on April 16. Before settling on L'Enfant Plaza, the International Spy Museum considered Dupont Underground or the Carnegie Library as new locations.
