There’s a handful of design options for the new Vienna police station, but all of the plans being considered by town leaders will double the size of the existing building.
The Vienna Town Council plans to review three proposals for the project from Dewberry Architects Inc. at a meeting on Monday (Jan. 14).
The current station is 11,800 square-feet, while all of the new designs are over 28,400 square feet.
All of the designs extend the station southwest along Locust Street away from Center Street. In addition to new rooms for roll call, interviews,and other daily police-work uses, the new station designs feature a large “community room” and public lobby.
Two of the designs are very similar, both featuring the same distinctive curved meeting room at the Center Street end of the building, but with different parking layouts at the far side of the station.
Price estimates for the project range from $13 million to $15 million, with an estimated construction start date in fall 2020.
The project’s approval was not without some controversy, however. At a Town Council meeting earlier this week, Councilmember Pasha Majdi opposed awarding a contract for project management, saying there were better projects that could be funded instead.
