The new LAPD HQ, viewed from City Hall two weeks ago as concrete for the 1st street sidewalk was being poured.

It's not officially opened yet, but that hasn't stopped Downtown pedestrians from making quick use of the wide new sidewalk lining the LAPD headquarters building's 1st street frontage, one of several recent changes made as construction has advanced.

Exterior work on the headquarters building continues, but is rapidly entering its final phases. The sidewalk opening comes close on the heels of the removal of external construction elevators and the reopening of 2nd street's full width.

The new LAPD building is slated to be completed in June of 2009. It contains 500,000 square feet of space, 25% more than the department currently has at Parker Center.
