New Orlando Police HQ Takes Shape, Leading Other West-Side Projects

Just more than a stone’s throw from the renovated Citrus Bowl, the new home of the Orlando Police Department has begun to take shape.

Many of the three-story main building’s exterior concrete walls are already standing along South Street, as is the steel framework and part of the roof. The force could open its new doors as soon as this fall, officials say.
“We’ve gone to quite a few town meetings and ‘Coffee with a Cop’ [events], and people are really getting excited about it,” said Capt. Sue Manney, who’s handling logistics for the move.
When the new home debuts, it will mark a major milestone in the city’s plan — derided as gentrification by some critics — to revitalize the economically downtrodden west side of downtown.
