Several Maryland sites have been proposed for the new 2.1 million square foot complex that will accommodate over 11,000 employees who organize, coordinate and direct FBI activities in the U.S. and overseas. It will replace the J. Edgar Hoover building in Washington DC that has served as FBI headquarters since the mid-1970s.
