METRO TRANSIT POLICE DEPARTMENT
The new Metro Transit Police Department (MTPD) Facility addresses the massing and materiality of its urban industrial context, successfully creating an iconic building to highlight the presence of the police department in this developing neighborhood, just north of downtown Minneapolis.
A custom folded anodized aluminum panel cladding system reflects varying degrees of light and shadow across all four facades. The shifting asymmetrical pattern of floor to ceiling clear glazing maximizes southern exposure, allows penetration of daylight into the interior offices, and provides greater transparency between the police facility and the public realm.
The project scope included renovation of 9,000sf in the existing Heywood Building, a 62,350sf addition, secure police officer parking, a sally port and improved bus routing to storage garages. The new facility houses the Patrol Officers, Bicycle Officers, Police Canine Handlers, Criminal Investigators, a Crash Reconstruction Unit, the Counter-Terrorism Unit, Property and Evidence Unit, and the Training Unit.
