There's been movement for some time to get rolling on a new police headquarters in Mission Bay as a replacement for the Hall of Justice — now we've finally gotten our eyeballs on it!
Above, via the Architect's Newspaper, is a rough rendering from architects HOK and Mark Cavagnero Associates.
Voters will be asked to pull the lever this June on a roughly $100 million city bond that would pay for the construction of the new headquarters, as well as a bunch of emergency service upgrades.
The "Public Safety Building" will also house local police and fire stations, while the old fire station on the same block would be turned into a community meeting space.
The architect's concept: keep the building "civic and inviting, not bunker-like and heavy." The center of the building will be partially transparent, revealing a "monumental interior staircase." Oh, and LEED Gold, of course.
