Excerpt from article featured in the West End Word
The city council of University City is reviewing options for a new police department facility.
During a Sept. 9 discussion session, the council heard from representatives from architecture firms Trivers and HOK. The firms, along with the city’s police and public works departments, recently performed a facility assessment and feasibility study of the city hall annex building.
The annex, which is connected to city hall at 6801 Delmar at the western edge of the Loop, served as police headquarters until the department moved out several years ago due to numerous health and safety issues with the building. Police currently work out of a headquarters at 601 Trinity Ave.
