Residents in fear – police headquarters: “Monster-Bau” at rest


The new plans for the safety center in St. Pölten cause displeasure among residents of the iceberg. They are especially afraid of noise in the immediate vicinity of their homes.

A monstrous police barracks right outside the front door: “The local recreation area ‘Stadtwald West’ announced by the city of St. Pölten will now become a police barracks with a training and operations center, a shooting range and a dog unit, even a helipad is planned,” say residents of the iceberg fear in a nutshell. The new plans for the construction of the security center in St. Pölten are a thorn in your side.

plans changed
Because instead of the original location to the west of the existing buildings, a mega construction is now planned directly at the Kaiserwald settlement. According to future neighbors, the promised expansion of the local recreation area with 3,600 trees and children’s play facilities is also sacrificed to the new plans.

After years of negotiations, the city, state and executive announced the starting shot for the new police station in St. Pölten in early July with Minister Gerhard Karner. 1,300 agents will soon be on duty here on 22,000 m2. Now for the unexpected twist: “Yes, the plans have been forced to change. The original idea was different.

Any possible alternative
Unsuccessful land acquisitions – brought in by the city, according to the state – are responsible for this: “No agreement could be reached with the owners. The plans now available were the only way to realize the security center in St. Pölten. Mayor Matthias Stadler announced in the campaign finale for the 2021 municipal elections that “the city has all the properties together”.

According to the responsible government department, the exact layout of the area and the green spaces will only be decided in an architecture competition.
