San Diego, California | November 14th, 2023 – GOVT Real Estate Group announced today the recent sale of an essential and highly secured, 9,861 square-foot build-to-suit facility in Western Kentucky that is leased on a long-term basis to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) for use by three U.S Federal Government law enforcement agencies operating within the U.S. Department of Justice- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).

Completed in 2022, this new build-to-suit facility was designed and constructed to meet the stringent standards and security requirements of the U.S. Federal Government. Providing an essential base of operations for three federal law enforcement agencies, the U.S. DOJ Facility in Paducah houses the FBI, DEA, and ATF, creating a highly resilient agency roster and assemblage of three of the most sought-after tenants within the field of federal real estate investments.
