“It is a privilege and honor to provide the FBI Milwaukee Division with a state-of-the art facility built for its specialized mission.

FBI director: New Milwaukee field office expected to “make us more effective”

The Milwaukee FBI field office is getting a new home. The bureau’s employees are moving from their downtown Milwaukee location to a scenic spot in St. Francis.

The Milwaukee FBI field office celebrated the official opening of its new home on Wednesday morning, June 1st.

“This is about giving you the space, the safety, the technology, the stuff that you need to be great,” said FBI Director James Comey.

The move was big enough to garner a visit from the FBI director himself.

“It was so important for me to be part of this to celebrate this that honestly, I blew off a meeting with the president of the United States,” Comey said.

FOX6 News is told the new facility is actually about 9,000 square feet smaller than the FBI’s previous Milwaukee location. However, it is expected the work space will be both more efficient and more effective.

One of the bureau’s best offices in U.S.

MILWAUKEE COUNTY —A new FBI field office opened for the first time in St. Francis Wednesday.

U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee) was there for the office’s grand opening.

“We are so pleased that they would choose this beautiful lakefront property,” Moore said. “The minute I walked into this property, you could just feel the countervailing force, a peace.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Milwaukee offices’ move to St. Francis on Wednesday marks a significant milestone for the operation.

Previously located at 330 E. Kilbourn Ave. in downtown Milwaukee, FBI leaders hosted a ceremony revealing the new headquarters at 3600 S. Lake Drive in St. Francis, overlooking Lake Michigan. The Molasky Group of Companies of Las Vegas purchased the former Stark Investments headquarters in February 2015 for $12.75 million.

The U.S General Services Administration agreed to lease the 82,000-square-foot building and has a 20-year lease. The facility originally was built as the headquarters for manufacturer Harnischfeger, now Joy Global Inc., then was sold and became the headquarters for Stark.

FBI Director Visits Milwaukee to Unveil new Field Office

CBS 58

When you skip a meeting with the President of the United States to visit Milwaukee, you must have a pretty good reason.

That was the case Wednesday morning, when FBI Director James Comey stopped by the new FBI Field Office in St. Frances.

“At 11:00 this morning I was supposed to be in the situation room with the President,” he joked with the crowd. “And I asked my deputy to go instead because it was so important to be a part of this celebration, and I know the President understands that as well.”

He was joined by hundreds who gathered to open the new facility, which sits on a bluff over-looking Lake Michigan in St. Frances.

“Men and women of Milwaukee’s Field Division, you deserve this,” he told the crowd.”

The new facility comes in around 82-thousand-square feet, slightly smaller than their previous space in downtown Milwaukee. But Comey says it’s better suited for their needs; with better technology, better safety, and more room to work with local departments.

“This has been a long time coming,” he says. “We’ve been in sub-optimal space for quite some time, and that affects moral.”
