North Richland Hills' new City Hall will consolidate City Hall, Public Safety and Municipal Court services into one campus. Currently, these city services are housed in six buildings on three different campuses, two of which are being impacted by the Loop 820 widening.
The new facility will be built on a portion of the old North Hills Mall property off Boulevard 26. The 80-acre former mall site was abandoned in 2004 and the buildings were demolished in 2007.
Estimated square footage for the new facility is 182,000 square feet. This includes about 89,000 square feet for Public Safety operations, about 78,500 square feet for City Hall and about 14,500 square feet for Municipal Court. It is estimated that construction will be completed in early 2016.
Vacant land adjacent to the new City Hall will be redeveloped as City Point, with a mix of uses including retail, restaurant, office, hospitality, entertainment, and multi-family residential. The property is privately owned and represented by ARA Newmark, a national commercial real estate brokerage with local offices in Dallas. The city is working closely with ARA Newmark on marketing the property and meeting with prospective parties interested in purchasing and developing the property. View City Point Zoning Plan
The city property that will be vacated at 6720 and 7301 NE Loop 820 will be redeveloped with commercial uses. The Fire Administration building on Dick Fisher Drive will continue to serve as a training center and backup dispatch and emergency operations center.
