Danville to hold special presentation on future town hall, police HQ site

Town staff hope to move into 500 La Gonda Way by mid-2021

Danville town officials are planning to hold a special presentation reviewing their plans to move the town offices and police department during a special study session Tuesday morning.

While escrow is not expected to close on the property at 500 La Gonda Way until the later part of this year, the current building owners have accepted the town's purchase offer of $12.75 million.

The 50,093-square-foot building, located next door to the current town offices, lies on 2.69 acres of land with approximately 165 parking spaces at the corner of La Gonda Way and El Cerro Boulevard and will serve as the headquarters for the town’s government and police force.

Situated next to the Interstate 680 southbound exit ramp, town staff say the building includes 38,161 square feet of office space and 11,932 square feet of unfinished space.

A timeline for construction has not yet been solidified, but Danville’s public information officer Geoff Gillette said the town plans to move in and use the new facility sometime around mid-2021.

It's a shame the building never ended up "for the kids" as a theater, most people have probably forgotten the history of this place: Web Link
hopefully there are enough parking spaces to obtain approval on a building permit, oh wait...nevermind. Anyway, what will the city do with the old police station?
