Construction is set to start this summer on a new Oklahoma City police headquarters and court complex, a project seen as a potential catalyst to redeveloping the west fringe of downtown.
Plans presented publicly for the first time Thursday at the Downtown Design Review Committee show a new court building to be built on a surface parking lot the city owns at the northeast corner of Couch Drive and Shartel Avenue.
A new police headquarters, meanwhile, will be built on a city-owned surface parking lot on the southeast corner of Colcord Drive and Shartel Avenue. New parking will be built between the two new buildings, where the current police headquarters and court are located.
