Project Description:

The City of Los Angeles intends to construct a new Los Angeles Police Department Rampart Police Station on 6th Street in a dense residential community, three blocks west of the 110 Freeway and downtown Los Angeles. The client’s goals include maximizing public green space and developing a proud civic image, subtly referencing the Art Deco and Art Modern architecture of the surrounding area. High-priority security features must be invisibly integrated, achieving a sense of public openness, transparency, and inviting appearance. The building program includes a state-of-the-art police facility with community meeting facilities, vehicle facility (for maintenance, fueling, and washing), 297-car parking structure, public parking, and secure garden areas. The project achieved Gold LEED certification with USGBC.
