For Dallas-Fort-Worth-based design and construction firm KAI, the new South Dallas Government Center (SDGC) project provided an opportunity to highlight South Dallas’ rich history and culture, plus shed light on restorative justice through its design theme and art integration. Residents and officials in the predominately African American community celebrated the 73,000-square-foot facility’s Grand Opening on July 29.
The new $22 million government center is situated on a 12-acre campus at the corner of West Wheatland Road and Polk Street and replaces and consolidates three aging facilities under one roof to house Dallas County’s Tax Office; Veteran’s Affairs; County Constable; Sheriff’s Traffic Division, Dispatch and K-9 Unit; and two Justice of the Peace courts. A new 11,000-square-foot Dallas County Sheriff’s Training Academy was also designed and constructed on the southern end of the campus.
