The Veteran’s Memorial Building provided a central location for many city services prior to the Flood of 2008. The
building, however, prevented expansion of many program and departmental spaces due to its site constraints and LEVEL+1
historic nature. At the heart of the building lies expansive public event spaces, which can affect the operation of internal SQUARE FEET: 28,478
service departments and necessary space adjacencies. To encroach on the public event spaces with internal space
needs would be a detriment to the historic nature of the structure.

PARKING SUMMARY:

POST-FLOOD
CONSIDERATIONS:
The below-grade and ground levels of the Veteran’s Memorial Building are at the greatest risk for damage due to future
flood events. As May’s Island and the Veteran’s Memorial Building are not protected by flood mitigation technology
along the Cedar River, the building carries an inherent risk for future occupants. The planned flood mitigation strategies
designed to protect the greater Cedar Rapids Area may in fact increase flood event damage on May’s Island as water is
channeled through and away from the urban core.

CONSIDERATIONS:
A new facility would allow for the site to accommodate all the departmental
programs. A site will be chosen based on evaluation criteria which best suits
its functions. By creating a “one-stop” facility, it can offer greater services and
increase it’s presence in the community. All new state-of-the art technology and
building practices can be incorporated to make this new building one of the
most sustainable in the state.

CONSTRUCTION: FUNDING SOURCES: COMPONENTS:

BUILDING
CONSIDERATIONS:
Westdale Mall would accommodate the entire new program for the City Services Center. It provides
for easy access as well as parking for employees and visitors. The building exceeds the City Services
Center requirements by 760,499 SF. The remaining space will need to be occupied through lease
or other means. Westdale Mall would need to go through renovation and updates to create a heathy
and state-of-the-art facility. The site is not centrally located within Cedar Rapids and loses the central
city connection desired.
