New FBI office opens in St. Francis

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.

The director of the FBI was there for the grand opening of the agency’s new headquarters.

The FBI believes a new $13 million field office will keep agents safe and allow them to be more efficient.

Aside from being highly secure, the office is also on a plot of land known for its natural beauty.

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.”

FBI Director James Comey cut the ribbon at the new facility.

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.”
