OVERVIEW

Harbour Contractors, Inc. was selected for the new 23rd, now 19th, District Police Station, which replaced the existing police station. The old station was built in the 1930s and did not have adequate space or amenities to service the Town Hall District. The new station consists of a two-story 44,000 SF load-bearing masonry building with a design based on the prototype for other new police stations that have been built throughout the City. The project was designed to accommodate a staff of 450 people over three shifts and contains male/female locker rooms, roll call room, exercise room, sally port, holding cells, interview rooms, evidence areas, 100 seat community room, administrative and general offices, 150-foot communications tower, and a four-story parking garage. The project was built to LEED® Gold Certification.
