A new FBI headquarters likely will be built in Maryland in 2017, a source on Capitol Hill told FOX 5 [1]

Maryland and Virginia were under consideration for a new headquarters to replace the current one, which is cramped and not equipped to handle modern-day technology.

The new location would be Greenbelt, Maryland. 

Congress approved $834 million for the new building, which is expected to cost $2.1 billion.
