Virginia, Maryland Pick Up Fight to Land New FBI Headquarters

Virginia and Maryland are stepping up competition to land the new headquarters of the FBI, the Washington Examiner reports.

Drawn by the promise of 12,000 new jobs and an infusion of new tax revenue, the states and cities are lobbying hard to replace the current headquarters in Washington D.C., the four-decade-old J. Edgar Hoover Building.

That building is in disrepair and would cost nearly $2 billion to renovate.

The plan calls for the new site to be 2-million square feet.

Tough restrictions on where a new headquarters can relocate – such as within two miles of a Metro station – have put Fairfax County and Prince George County in the top positions to land the new headquarters, the Examiner wrote.
