Located in Mission Bay, the new San Francisco Public Safety and Police Headquarters, provides a state of the arts building, serving the entire region of the City and County of San Francisco. The building is a co-mingling of the Public Safety Facility, Police Administration Headquarters, Fire Station No. 4, and the rehab of the historic Fire Station No. 30. The main entry plaza to the building anchors both the new five story structure and the renovated Fire Station No. 30. The floor to ceiling façade gives the building a transparent face to the public along the entry plaza, making visible, a public art installation recognizing the men and women who have been injured or fallen on duty by Shimon Attie. To the south of Fire Station 30 is second art installation by Paul Kos, commemorating both the police department and fire department. Surrounding the building is a series of concrete walls that eventually be covered with vines and provides a green base to the building. Hidden on Level 3 is a landscape courtyard specifically for the users of the building. A 6,500 SF green roof, caps the top of the building, aiding in the capture of rainwater. The project will be certified LEED Gold.
