Los Angeles Police Headquarters Facility, Los Angeles, United States

Posted by ewanvfe on 07/04/2008


The DMJM designed LAPD HQ will soon be complete
DMJM was selected by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Department of Public Works to design the Los Angeles Police Headquarters Facility. The new 500,000–square foot Police Headquarters Facility will be located across the street from City Hall in downtown Los Angeles and includes below-grade parking for 700 cars. It will have areas dedicated to police administration and investigative operations and feature large assembly areas including a Police Commission hearing room, conference center, state of the art Compstat Command Center, a 200 seat cafe and a 450 seat auditorium located outside the building footprint on Main street to stimulate the street level and serve building occupants as well as serve the general public. Integrated into the design are generous public spaces, civic plazas, and lush gardens to promote a sense of openness and community between the LAPD and surrounding neighborhoods.
Responding to the City of Los Angeles’ goal of sustainable building practices, several green building elements are incorporated into the new Police Headquarters Facility and upon completion a LEED™ Certified rating from the U.S. Green Building Council is expected.
