Chick Audits LAPD Headquarters Costs

News Brief

City Controller Laura Chick has begun an audit investigating costs associated with the new Los Angeles Police Department headquarters being built at First and Spring streets in the Civic Center. The price tag for the project, slated for completion in 2008, recently jumped to nearly $437 million and is expected to escalate further. The development was originally approved by the City Council in 2004 at a cost of $300 million. The audit will specifically look at whether subcontractors on the project, including architecture firm DMJM and construction management company Vanir, are complying with contracts. It will also focus on the city's Bureau of Engineering, to make sure the department is adequately overseeing the project. The investigation will be handled by KPMG, which provides audit, tax and advisory services. It is expected to be complete early next year. Also in Downtown, Chick is conducting an audit of the city Recreation and Parks Department's Quimby program, which charges developer fees to fund neighborhood park projects. Recreation and Parks has collected $120 million through the program over the past five years, and recently faced criticism from Downtown stakeholders and city officials for producing few results. That audit, also to be completed in early 2008, will focus specifically on Downtown.

I like the old rendering better,.. if I remember correctly it was circular or semi-circular. Hmm, it kinda looked like the Staples Center but "niftier". This building looks like an extension of the CalTrans next door

fast

This building went up fast. Its hard to tell the scope by these pics but the last time I was down there the trasportatin building seemed so large so this one might be bigger than it appears to be in the photos. LA is so exciting as always you never know whats next. I love that about this city always changing and evolving.
