The FBI has moved out of the city of Boston and into a new Chelsea facility that has more room for expanded operations.
The FBI Boston Division has already started working at its new headquarters at 201 Maple St., the Boston Globe reports. The new building is 268,000 square feet.
“This new facility will give our employees and law enforcement partners better security, upgraded technologies, and provide more room for our growing task forces,” Harold H. Shaw, the special agent in charge, said in a statement.
The General Services Administration is leasing the eight-story building to the FBI.
The FBI Boston Division is responsible for federal laws in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
“We look forward to continuing to build upon the relationships we’ve established here in Chelsea while maintaining the critical partnerships we’ve developed over the years in Boston,” Shaw said. “We hope our presence in the neighborhood will have a positive impact.”
