Award of Excellence - NAIOP Northern Ohio
Working as part of a collaborative architectural team, City Architecture served as design architect for the new $17.5 million Third District Police Station and City-Wide Communications Center. Richard L. Bowen and Associates provided programming services and is the architect-of-record for the initiative. As an integral part of a greater district master plan, the new station will respond not only to existing neighborhood conditions, but will also take into account the future public and private investments that will surround it.
The building’s architectural language creates an animated and inviting civic structure while its layout ensures the security and privacy inherent of its use and complex scope. Meeting rooms, training facilities, holding rooms, community spaces and communications centers on three floors create a balance between public and private uses and integrate sustainable design features throughout.
