The LAPD Harbor Station and Jail complex features a new two-story police station and 16,000-sf jail, a separate 400-space parking garage and 100-sf vehicle maintenance and refueling facility. The Harbor Station serves the communities of San Pedro, Wilmington, Harbor City and Harbor Gateway.
Confronted with a tight budget in a very unstable construction environment, Miyamoto produced a highly economical structure by making best use of available design methods and materials. This included the use of precast concrete double-tees in the garage and reducing steel tonnage in the station through the use of LRFD design methods. The project is LEED GOLD Certified.
