The City Council today approved spending nearly$30 million to rebuild the LAPD Northeast Division station in Glassell Park. The existing 41,000-square-foot building on San Fernando Road is considered too small and antiquated. A few years back, station employees complained about “unpleasant odors” in the building that once served as a photo processing center. The Northeast Division’s home of nearly 30 years will be replaced with a new $29.45 million structure that would replicate the offices of the new Olympic Division station on Vermont Avenue. The Northeast Division serves an area stretching from Echo Park and Silver Lake to Eagle Rock and Highland Park.
