The General Services Administration is expected to seek proposals shortly to restore and lease historic Hangar One at Moffett Field in northern California. GSA will rely on section 111 of the National Historic Preservation Act to free the winning developer from using the hangar for activities related to the mission of the NASA Ames Research Center, reported the Mountain View Voice. “Section 111 gives us unique authority,” said David Haase, branch chief of the GSA. “Unlike enhanced use leasing authority NASA has used in the past, this will allow tenants to use the property for any use [they] would want to see within [section 111]. Before partners would need to have some direct connection to NASA,” he said. GSA will also offer companies the option of operating the airfield.
