An existing glass-enclosed police memorial with underground lighting was refurbished and relocated. Crews built new housing for the memorial. Then, they disassembled the original and moved it. The operation was described as a delicate one.
The project features a "unique use of space" and provides the North Embarcadero neighborhood with a new "civic treasure," says one Best Projects judge.
