As the FBI begins planning its move to a new campus, the crime agency has a number of factors to consider in determining the location.
According to a Fierce Government article, the FBI wants the campus to be 40-55 acres and in close proximity to mass transit, so that its 11,000 employees can easily commute to work.
Pat Findlay, the bureau’s assistant director of facilities and logistics, said the new location can’t have more than 4,300 parking spaces.

He added that it would cost $850 million to renovate the J. Edgar Hoover Building but the current FBI headquarters would still only fit 52% of employees.
Bill Dowd, GSA’s public buildings service acting regional commissioner, said the agency would prefer a swapping deal that exchanges the Hoover building for a new one.
