The proposed site is at 2600 West Travis Street at the southwest corner of Travis Street and Northgate Drive in the Blalock Industrial Park and across the street from a new fire station and near the new Sherman High School. The headquarters will consist of two buildings totaling 33,971 square feet with 31 public parking spaces and 109 secure parking spaces.
The main building will serve as a stand-alone police headquarters, with associated administration area, training room, conference rooms, investigations, records, evidence processing and storage, dispatch, patrol, locker rooms, interview rooms, storage, and associated support areas. The facility shall incorporate a storm shelter for the critical areas of the facility.
Project stakeholders are developing a guaranteed maximum price. If approved by the City Council, work is anticipated to begin in November. Substantial completion is scheduled for early 2023.
