The City of Fort Pierce Building Department recently relocated to the 3rd floor of the Sunrise Center building, next to City Hall’s 5-story Parking Garage.
The Building Department, previously located on the 2nd floor of City Hall, moved into a more modern and contemporary office space consisting of 8,000 square feet which include a bright and spacious lobby, a large conference room, and two educational training rooms suitable for seminars and stakeholder meetings. The Building Department will be able to provide a convenient and more efficient service to the public, including a self-service kiosk to submit documents electronically, with more technological advances to come. Free parking is conveniently located in the same location as the City’s Parking Garage.
“This is really a quantum leap with regard to the services that we can provide for the City.” Says Paul Thomas, Building Official. “The new office location will enable the Building Department to successfully expand its services in response to the demands placed upon it by the City’s ever-increasing growth.”
The Sunrise Center Building, located directly adjacent to City Hall Parking Garage and faces Orange Avenue, features 4 floors of habitable space. The Sunrise Center is projected to become a mixed-use facility with the anticipation of hosting a visitor’s welcoming center, a family services center, and the new rendition of the City of Fort Pierce Building Department office.
