Business Support Facilities ($28.9 Million)
Improvements to Metro’s business support facilities include renovation of the Jack- son Graham building (JGB) and new equipment at the revenue collection facility. These investments total $28.9 million over the next 10 years (see table below).
JGB is Metro’s headquarters. It was constructed in 1974 prior to the Metrorail system opening in 1976. The 440,000 sq. ft. building has not undergone complete renovation in its 35 years. An analysis conducted for Metro by Bolan Smart As- sociates indicated that the sale of the Jackson Graham Building and relocation of Metro headquarters would result in a net loss of between $5 and $50 million for M e t r o .

yard. At this facility, Metro employees process fare revenue in preparation for bank deposit. Existing office and facility equipment (e.g., loading dock levers) have ex- ceeded or are at the end of their life cycles. Replacement and upgrades of this equipment and technologies are needed to improve efficiency of fare collection processes. Repairs to the revenue collection building (~$1.8 million) are included under the Bus Garage Facility Tier 1 project.

Police Facilities ($21.1 Million)
Two police facilities are in need of replacement over the next ten years: the District 2 Substation located at the Huntington Metro station and the Special Operations Division facility. The cost of replacing these facilities is $21.1 million (see table).
Metro plans to replace MTPD’s District 2 Substation with a new 18,500 sq. ft. fa-
cility modeled on the new District 1 Substation near the Fort Totten Metro station (constructed in 2007). More than 100 officers operate out of the current District 2 Substation, a 7,000 sq. ft. former private residence that was acquired when the
Huntington Metro station was constructed. Not designed for police work, the
