A Chicago Police Department headquarters that could house some 1,500 officers and be the most complex in the United States has opened in the heart of downtown, a project that includes a new, state-of-the-art parking garage, as well as a new library and community center.
A public works program is also under way to transform the office building into a public park and parkland.
The 1,450-square-foot building was built on the former site of the former Sears warehouse and was originally slated to be demolished, but it was recently saved from that fate.
The $400 million project, called CityCenter, was officially opened Wednesday by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who called it “a bold, bold and visionary development that will transform the downtown area into a destination for people of all ages, backgrounds, religions and races.”
The new facility includes a parking garage and a large park that will also be accessible to pedestrians.
Emanuel called the building “an iconic building that symbolizes Chicago’s success as a great city.”
Chicago’s city manager, David Cullinan, described the complex as “an amazing piece of engineering.”
The park will be open from mid-September through mid-October, Cullinon said, adding that the park will have a full collection of sports, cultural, outdoor, cultural and outdoor events.
The park’s name comes from the famous “Park and Load” movement that was started in the early 1900s to provide space for residents to gather and take advantage of public facilities, including parks and playgrounds.
It was part of the “Parking Day” program that allowed for residents and businesses to park and load their vehicles on public street corners for free.
Cullinnan said that the new building was the largest and most complex park in the nation, which is a feat given the number of other parks in the city.
The new building is being built to replace the former city’s parking garage in the building that was the Sears site.
The city is expected to replace it in 2021.
The project includes a library, a new public space and a new park with a collection of local, national and international art.
The center will be the largest urban park in America, according to a report by The Chicago Reporter.
The space will be about 100,000 square feet and include the city’s largest public plaza, a walkway and an amphitheater.
The building is expected the largest park in North America, with a total surface area of about 4.2 million square feet.
The area will include the parking garage with an estimated $1.2 billion value.
The parking garage will house more than 6,000 cars.
The library will be home to about 1,200 books and 1,400 books in a full-service, multimedia space.
The public space will have an open-air seating area with views of the Chicago skyline.
The facility will have more than 1,800 parking spaces and a bike parking facility.
The Parks Department said that it will build on the citywide program that was approved by the Illinois Legislature last year to help pay for a park that has been the focus of local planning and design efforts.
The state had planned to spend $40 million to build a $2.6 million park in Grant Park in the downtown neighborhood.
The current park was the site of a planned redevelopment in the late 1970s and was later torn down.
The proposed new park would be more than 20 times that size.
The parks department said it would partner with local and state officials to develop a plan for the new park, which would be complete by 2021.
In a press conference, Cullynan said the new project will help bring Chicago’s parks and recreation district into the 21st century.
The announcement was made on the first day of the park’s public opening.
“This is a new and exciting day for the city and the people of Chicago.
As Mayor Emanuel announced in June, he’s committed to building an all-new park that’s more than just a place for our residents and our visitors to gather, shop, walk and play,” Cullinac said.
“The Parks Department is thrilled to be partnering with Mayor Emanuel and our partners to make this new park a reality.
We are working closely with the City Council to develop this project with a vision to be a true community-wide park that celebrates Chicago’s rich history and identity.
We will also continue to build on our commitment to create a truly great place for people to come and enjoy.”
The mayor said that his office is committed to making the new citywide park the “greatest park in Chicago.”
The project was designed by architects DAN Wasser and Associates.
Wasser, a partner at the firm, was involved in the design of the Lincoln Center in New York and other major venues in New Jersey and California.
The company also worked on the new Macy’s in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
“With this new project, DAN and its team of partners have created an
