McALLEN - The City Commission has approved a nearly $3.6 million expansion of the McAllen Public Safety Building located at 1601 North Bicentennial Blvd. The project will include a 15,800-sf addition and the renovation of nearly 13,600 sf of existing space.
The Public Safety Building was completed in 2003 for an estimated construction cost of $8 million, according to state filings. The building holds the McAllen Police Department and city Municipal Court.
The two-story addition includes an auditorium-style “roll call room” and additional space for the department’s crime scene investigation unit. New offices for sergeants and lieutenants, training areas and conference rooms will occupy the remaining space.
Construction, expected to take about 340 days, will start in December 2013 or early January 2014, said City Engineer Yvette Barrera.
