CHELSEA, Mass. (WWLP) – The FBI Boston Division moved its headquarters to a new facility Monday.

The new facility is located at 201 Maple Street in Chelsea and is the first time the Boston division is located in a stand-alone building. The new facility’s main phone number has been changed to 857- 386-2000.

The division will continue to serve Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, and oversee ten satellite offices in those states.

According to a release sent to 22News from the FBI Boston Division, the new facility is 268,000 square feet and eight stories high. It is being leased for the FBI by the U.S. General Services Administration for 20 years.

“This new facility will give our employees and law enforcement partners better security, upgraded technologies, and provide more room for our growing task forces,” said Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Boston Division. “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. We hope our presence in the neighborhood will have a positive impact.”
