Eastpointe City Hall
The new Eastpointe City Hall replaced a facility which was programmatically inefficient, difficult to navigate and costly to operate. It infuses new life into this aging, blue-collar community and serves as a welcoming and prominent gateway to the downtown business district. The new 17,000sf facility features an open, bright and inspirational reception lobby, as well as an appropriate vantage point from which to navigate. City departments are now easy to find, supporting improved customer satisfaction and collaboration. The open work areas are accessible and appropriately organized.
The design process was highly collaborative. Stakeholders including City Council, Building Authority, and City Administration members, as well as public users imparted their needs and desires to the design team. The information was carefully recorded, analyzed and refined, then coupled with facility programming results to impact design development.
The new Eastpointe City Hall successfully serves this community and will remain a source of pride for years to come.
