FBI Announces Plans for New Office in St. Louis

The federal government plans to construct a new FBI field office at the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency campus in St. Louis, according to a St. Louis Business Journal report Thursday.

The planned 40.4K-square foot facility is intended to accommodate information technology equipment and FBI cyber mission servers and unify all field offices across St. Louis. The agency plans to build a visitor screening area, a vehicle repair center, an office building, a 20-spot parking area and a garage facility for 385 vehicles.

"The next step in the process is to develop a concept design to determine feasibility," said Rebecca Wu, spokeswoman at the FBI. "To that, all parties are committed to working toward a plan that will work best for all."

The construction project has a value of $128.9M, and the General Services Administration requested $8.9M for the development of concept designs.
