After a successful public bid, The City of Charlotte selected Southside to build the new CMPD–Eastway division. Designed by C design, Inc., Southside constructed a new 14,622 SF police station, 1,144 SF storage/garage structure and a 4,254 SF parking canopy. Housing more than 100 police officers and 15 members of the
city’s code enforcement team, this station is more of a one-stop shop than older police stations. Since code enforcement addresses longer-term issues than
police officers, having police and code enforcement located in the same building makes coordination between the two offices more convenient for the citizens.
Future Charlotte police stations will be modeled after this prototype. The design, construction, and operation of the station will save approximately 35% more energy than a typical design for a building of this size.
