Reuse Parker Center
The City of Los Angeles will soon decide whether to demolish Parker Center, a highly significant building that served as headquarters for the Los Angeles Police Department for more than fifty years.
Designed by the renowned firm of Welton Becket & Associates, this 1955 building can and should be preserved for a number of reasons, including its architectural significance, its key role in postwar Los Angeles law enforcement and culture, the chance it offers to recognize one of the more complicated aspects of our city’s history, and its potential for reuse.
The City plans to redevelop the site of Parker Center for a mix of uses, including office space for City staff. Two options in the City's environmental impact report (EIR) preserve at least the main building. We believe that Alterative B2 is the best solution for reusing Parker Center while meeting the project's objectives.
We need your help to persuade City leaders to make this project outstanding by reusing Parker Center. Please sign the petition and tell Mayor Eric Garcetti and Councilmember Jose Huizar that Alternative B2 is a "win-win" opportunity for the city without needlessly throwing away an important historic resource.

Please support alternative B2 and reuse Parker Center. This alternative is a "win-win" opportunity for the city without needlessly throwing away an important historic resource. Rather than demolition, this option:
- Reinvests and reuses an important historic building with an expansion that can be infused with modern, 21st century technologies.
- Allows for at least 1,775 employees to be housed in centralized location near City Hall, with strong potential to house even more employees.
- Saves the City and taxpayers $150 million.
- Offers the same if not better capabilities to connect and engage with the Little Tokyo neighborhood and community.
- Honors the city's past and history, and tells an important story of L.A.
