The Los Angeles City Council agreed today to spend an additional $40 million for work on the Los Angeles Police Department’s new administrative building, which is under construction in the downtown area. The council unanimously agreed to increase the project’s budget to $437 million to cover additional expenses associated with land acquisition costs and the Motor Transport Division parking structure. Sylmar-based Tutor-Saliba broke ground 11 months ago on the building on First Street, between Main and Spring streets. The 500,000-square-foot structure, which is slated to open in May 2009, will replace the LAPD’s Parker Center, which was completed in 1955. The additional funding will come from Proposition C, parking revenue and the Municipal Improvement Corporation of Los Angeles.
