Renderings for the new LAPD Northeast Division station in Glassell Park appeared on Facebook yesterday and they're a doozy. Construction starts this summer on the new 41,000 square foot station, to be built on the western edge of the current station's property on San Fernando Road. Designs for the Northeast station follow in the footsteps in the similarly curvy and futuristic Olympic division digs on Vermont--both are designed by Gruen Associates (convention center expansion, MOCA). Eastsider LA says the Northeast cops needed new offices because their current home, which they've been in since 1983, was cramped and emitted "unpleasant odors" (more so than your typical police station, we assume). Prop. Q funds are paying for the new station, which will not feature a vehicle maintenance and parking structure, "as that would push the total cost of the project to nearly $50 million," reports the Eagle Rock Patch. Of course, Northeast and Olympic are far from the only fancy-looking LAPD stations (see here and here).
