Police Headquarters Building to be Demolished

It is very sad to read about the looming demolition of another unique modern building in San Antonio. From the Downtown Blog:

City seeks contractor for SAPD HQ demo

The construction of the public safety headquarters, West Nueva Street and South Santa Rosa Avenue, was the first indicator that, indeed, the ball was rolling on a land-swap deal between the city and the U.S. government.
What will become the headquarters for the police and fire departments is on schedule to be operational by September, according to the city.

Now, the city has issued a request for proposals for the demolition and environmental abatement of the current police headquarters, 214 W. Nueva St., after, of course, the police finally move.

The demolition is scheduled for completion by early 2013.

  1. It would be great to be able to save some materials from the demo. Perhaps they will go with a demo company that reclaims materials?
