Demolition crews were hard at work Friday collapsing the former North County Government Center and Fairfax County Police Station into a pile of rubble.
Police and county personnel moved next door into a new, $18 million building in February. The demolition of the old building, constructed in 1985, had been long planned. The space will become a parking lot for the new headquarters at 1801 Cameron Glen Dr.
The new, 35,000-square-foot building is the first for the Town Center North area. Longterm plans nearby including housing, hotels, a town green, a recreation center, along with a new public library and Embry Rucker Community Shelter.
