Groundbreaking for Evidence Warehouse at DC Village

Yesterday, according to The Washington Post, there was a groundbreaking ceremony for a new Property and Evidence Warehouse for MPD at DC Village, which is located near the southern tip of the city on the east side of the Anacostia River. This $20 million project will be jointly developed by the city and Akridge (the same developer that will build 100 V Street), and will aim for LEED-Silver certification. The press release from DMPED states the new facility will provide the following features:
    • computer-automated storage system for logging and retrieval of evidence
    • secure and controlled access to all areas
    • video event logging of transactions
    • radio frequency handheld portable terminals
    • bar code scanning & printing techniques
    • refrigerated units for storing DNA samples

Construction will be complete by early 2011. The above rendering of the evidence warehouse is from the OPM website.
