Building 2 Plans at Goddard
At the link below you will find the Building 2 – Public Information for National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106 Compliance, dated April 27, 2011.

The Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) is planning to deconstruct Building 2, the Research Projects Laboratory. Built in 1960, and modified many times since then, this lab and office building is beyond restoration and has clearly come to the end of its useful life in serving NASA’s mission. Due to its design, current configuration, age, and condition, Building 2 no longer efficiently and effectively serves GSFC’s current and future mission requirements. Adapting the building for current and alternate uses was evaluated and analyzed; however, quality and configuration issues made renewal a poor return on investment for the Center/Agency. Building 2 is located just north of Greenbelt Road and west of Building 1 and the Center’s main gate.

The Center wishes to capture and celebrate the history of Building 2 and the other outdated buildings. Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act prescribes a process to do this. This process includes public involvement. GSFC welcomes public comment on ways to best express the early history of Building 2.
