To improve public safety, the City of San Antonio unites the city’s police and fire departments in one facility. San Antonio’s new public safety headquarters administration building consolidates the administrative functions of the city’s police and fire departments into a 240,000 square foot administrative building with adjacent 650-car, nine level parking garage. The project, designed as LEED Silver, includes a vegetative roof, sunshades, and recycled water for irrigation. The parking garage includes priority parking for hybrid vehicles, as well as charging stations for electric cars and trucks. This project, along with the adjacent new federal courthouse, forms a new downtown government center.
