St. Charles Police Station

Design: FGM Architects, Oak Brook, Ill.                Construction Manager: Riley Construction, Lake Bluff, Ill.

About the Project

The City broke ground on the new 56,000 sq. ft. facility at 1515 W. Main Street on July 23, 2018, on the site of the former Valley Shopping Center. The new police station will replace the current facility, portions of which are nearly 100 years old. The $24.6 million project is expected to be completed by December 2019 and will support the City’s policing operations for the next 50 years. Click the Building Features link at the right for details about the project.
