Griffin Structures worked with the City of West Hollywood to redevelop an aging commercial building into a new City Hall and state-of-the-art Emergency Operations Center. The turn-key project was delivered move-in ready to serve West Hollywood residents and businesses, through a Public Private Partnership (P3). This project, completed in 1991, was one of the very first municipal P3 projects undertaken in the United States.
The comprehensive turn-key project converted a dilapidated 1950s office building into a striking new City Hall and Emergency Operations Center. The building was stripped down to its structural steel frame to accommodate a complete interior and exterior reconstruction to meet the City’s needs and specifications. This also provided for the installation of technologies to support the Emergency Operations Center.
Delivery of the project was structured around a P3 lease-leaseback agreement with an option to purchase. The agreement provided the City with guaranteed “up front” annual occupancy costs, while also offering flexibility with the option to purchase feature.
