This new central facility is intended to promote the redevelopment of the West Bay Drive downtown corridor into mixed-use space in support of the city’s strategic initiatives of public health and safety, sustainability, and community pride.
The new city hall complex on the northern 400 block of West Bay Drive will feature 100,385 square feet of facility space and a five-story parking structure with 308 parking spaces.
Almost 14,000 square feet of ground floor mixed-use commercial space will wrap city hall, and a second-floor terrace may accommodate al fresco dining or other options.
The second building on the property will feature the city hall capable of housing up to 10 city departments. A portion of city hall will be dedicated to a ground floor lobby and the remaining space will be dedicated to 4,000 square feet of mixed-use space.
In addition to the parking garage, the property will have a surface lot with 23 spaces, 12 parallel parking spaces directly on West Bay Drive, a public plaza that will have opportunities for outdoor dining space, public restrooms, and flexible indoor and outdoor event spaces.
Groundbreaking is set to start in 2022 and the city expects to open the doors in late 2023 or early 2024.
