USAA Buys LEED-Platinum Rated FBI Building

The U.S. Government Building Fund of the USAA Real Estate Co. has purchased the recently LEED-Platinum rated, 10-story FBI Chicago Field Office.

The fund, which is leasing the building to the FBI for an undisclosed sum, purchased the nearly 430,000-square-foot, 10-acre property for a reported $170 million in a deal that closed earlier this month.

The build-to-suit structure was developed for the FBI between 2004 and 2006.

The facility attained LEED-Platinum certification for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance in December and became the first FBI regional facility to achieve the designation, the highest in the green building rating assessment system established by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The FBI regional office includes a single-story annex and a three-story parking garage.

The field office is the based for the FBI division that oversees agency operations in 18 Illinois counties.
