FBI Moving to Corktown

but not far enough into it!!!

i was pleased to hear that the FBI will be moving into a larger facility near downtown… according to an article in the News, the new FBI facility will be privately owned and located right next to the Greyhound bus station… just last week i took a trip using Greyhound and thought to myself that the area near the bus station needed some help… this new facility will basically take up a good chunk of the land in the area, so that should help things a bit…

a few months back there was word that maybe the FBI would try to move into the old MCS… that woulda been really awesome to me and i think it woulda been great for Corktown, but that obviously won’t happen… on top of renovation costs, i’m not so sure the building would’ve been able to meet certain FBI requirements anyway…

    According to that article, the FBI is paying $11MM per year for 266,000 square feet of space. That’s $41/square foot!! Yikes Batman, that’s high.

    Hopefully it will cause the downtown developers and retailers to realize the potential on the other side of Highway 10. An improved area around the Greyhound Station will also leave Greyhound passengers just passing through with a favorable impression.
