New Missile Defense Agency Building Commissioned At Redstone Arsenal
The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) commissioned a new $44.4 million, 240,000-square-foot building at the von Braun Complex in Redstone Arsenal at Huntsville, Ala.
Some 2,500 people will move to the area because of the latest round of Base Realignment and Closure, or BRAC, Air Force Lt. General Henry “Trey” Obering III, Missile Defense Agency director.
While not specifically built to support BRAC, the 240,000-square-foot building will be occupied by MDA workers who are moving to Huntsville as part of BRAC, as well as those who are moving as part of the MDA internal reengineering initiative.
Those workers will join several hundred other MDA employees and support contractors who have lived and worked in Huntsville since the beginning of the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization, a legacy organization predating MDA.
Total occupancy for the building will be around 1,000.
