Bellaire Town Square Municipal Facilities Design & Library Conceptual

About The Project:
In November 2013, Bellaire Citizens approved an $11 million bond referendum for the development of a new City Hall, Civic Center, Police Station and Municipal Courts.

In the Summer of 2014, City Council determined they wanted to combine City Hall and Municipal Courts and keep the Police Station and Civic Center as separate buildings. In September of 2014 City Council entered into a contractual agreement with PGAL for design and construction services and voted to form a citizen’s Ad Hoc steering committee.

Other development segments to be included in this project will include a revision to the Bellaire Town Center Master Plan, which include a conceptual design of a new library, conceptual designs for a signature corner at South Rice Ave and Jessamine and concept designs for pedestrian friendly South Rice Ave.
