Baltimore Police’s Western District station will undergo a $2.4 million facelift, courtesy of a public/private partnership led by several local organizations.

The renovation will be funded by contributions from the JS Plank and DM DiCarlo Family Foundation, the Baltimore Ravens, Under Armour, Wells Fargo Bank, the Warnock Foundation, Maggie and Reed Cornish, BGE, St. Agnes Hospital, Comcast and the Abell Foundation.

The station on Mount Street was built in the late 1950s.

The business community’s contributions are being led by War Horse CEO Scott Plank and Andrew Bertamini, Wells Fargo Bank regional president for Maryland.

War Horse has been involved in previous updates to the Northern and Southeastern district stations.

Improvements include secure locker rooms, updated restrooms, conference rooms and better training space and equipment.

The project will go to the city Board of Estimates Wednesday.
