All of that hoopla for nothing. Plans for the teardown of the Federal Building and subsequent construction of new FBI office buildings in Westwood have been canceled. The FBI changed its mind. Apparently all of those cries over traffic were heard:
“This is good news. I am very pleased to hear that the FBI decided not to proceed with the building,” said [Senator] Feinstein in a statement. “There was an insurmountable amount of neighborhood opposition and a corridor of major traffic congestion. I am very happy to help the FBI in any way to find a new location.”Who thought the FBI listened to anything?
