With a commanding view over Chesterfield, the Government Center was developed as a cultural hub and city center. Consolidating all city offices and personnel, the new facility was programmed to meet anticipated growth in Chesterfield for the next 20 years and designed to host public gatherings indoors and on the piazzas.

The Government Center displays local artwork throughout the building and site. Designed to serve as an example of recently adopted landscape and building ordinances, the site has a parkline setting with low maintenance and native plant life.
