Los Angeles Police Department Administrative Building, 2009
100 S Spring St
Los Angeles Police Department New Headquarters Facility
Location: Los Angeles , California • Completion Date: Projected 2008
DMJM Roth Sheppard JV was the successful design team selected to provide architectural services for the new Los Angeles Police Headquarters Facility.
The Los Angeles Headquarters Facility is currently in the construction document phase and is projected to begin construction in the summer of 2006. The new 500,000 SF, $200m, LEED Certified facility is designed to be a state of the art law enforcement facility incorporating unique security design characteristics. The 11 levels of the building will house the administrative and investigative functions of the police department along with 2 ½ levels of below grade parking.

The 500,000-sq-ft structure not only will add much-needed space, but it will blend in with neighboring icons such as City Hall, the Los Angeles Times building and St. Vibiana’s Cathedral.
Located on a block bordered by First, Second, Spring and Main streets, on the site of a former Caltrans building, the project broke ground in November 2006.
When finished in June 2009, the headquarters will replace the earthquake-damaged circa-1955 Parker Center, located a block north of the current site. Parker Center is still currently serving as police headquarters and officials have not decided what to do with the building after the new facility opens.
