Looking north from the corner of 2nd and Spring.

As work gets closer to completion on LAPD's $437-million headquarters building across the street from City Hall, Downtown residents are getting a clearer view of the landscaping and pedestrian amenities that surround the building.

Designed by Downtown landscape architecture firm Meléndrez, the building's green areas wrap all four sides of the structure. The second street side of the facility features a nearly one-acre lawn, while the Spring street side offers a linear pedestrian design that makes appealing use of the building's 75-foot setback.

LAPD is scheduled to start move-ins in the building later this month.
