The LEED Silver certified 12th Street Station is a 46,400 square foot, two story, mixed-use, police station with additional retail space. The project was an $11.7 million facility located in south central Little Rock, AR and part of the 12th Street Redevelopment Plan, under guidance from City Director Ken Richardson. This development is part of improving the Midtown area as a whole and serves as an anchor for the 12th street redevelopment with hopes to spur private investment and new businesses.
The design strives to combine sensible planning with appropriate architecture to create a new upgraded police station with state-of-the-art equipment as well as a place for the community to enjoy. 12th Street Station is a two-story structure that houses patrol and detective functions with broad public access to retail/public service space on the first floor. There are three retail bays and one restaurant bay that are leased by the city to private businesses. The main lobby is used by the community as additional programming space beyond that which is available at the Willie Hinton Community Resource Center across Cedar Street. The building’s design anticipates departmental needs in both space and functional location for patrol workloads.
12th Street Station was designed by RPPY Architects and constructed by East Harding Construction. Entegrity provided LEED Consulting, Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning, Building Testing, and Energy Modeling services for the project.
