Mid 1997 the city of Alexandria held an invited architecture competition to build a new police headquarters instead of the old one in down town. The competition was canceled later, and then a governmental firm was commissioned.
The main characteristic design theme was a symmetric, formal solid design that gives the building its security and stability it should provide the city of Alexandria.
The building is elevated on a green ramp allowing controlled access to it. And the heart of the 2 wings acts as the center of city security.
The building is equipped with a helipad and other facilities at the roof.
