The Arlington Heights Police Department is scheduled to open the new Arlington Heights Police Station at 200 East Sigwalt Street on Saturday December 22, 2018 at 6:30 a.m.
The police station space at the temporary location at 1500 West Shure Drive will be closed. Since May 15, 2017, approximately 15,000 square feet at the One North Arlington building near Route 53 and Dundee Road served as the temporary police station during construction of the new police station. Located between Arlington Heights Village Hall and Arlington Heights Fire Station 1, the new police station is in the same site where the old police station was located. The old police station was completely demolished to make way for the new 70,500 square-foot police station and 10,000 square-foot indoor garage.
The move into the new police station is within the targeted timetable for the construction and move back into the permanent location. The terms of the lease for the temporary location specified 24 months with a 3 month option, along with the ability to vacate after 14 months with no termination fee if a 45-day notice were provided.
Completion in July 2018 would have marked a quick 14-month construction period, and a mid-December opening marks a 19-month construction period — well within the outer range that was considered at 24 months.
The met goal for the targeted completion kept police officers from operating in two full winter seasons from a remote temporary location, and will mean the on-shift vehicles will be operating out of the police station from a garage protected from bad weather beginning Saturday.
