Steven Arai and Rich Murakami led the Arai Jackson Ellison Murakami Architects + Planners LLP design team on the Seattle Police Department's Southwest Precinct Station project during 2001-2003. They worked with Teresa Rodriguez, project manager for the City of Seattle, and the general contractor, Cree Construction Company, Incorporated, of Lynnwood, WA. The growth of the West Seattle neighborhood necessitated that the SPD's South Precinct (encompassing all of West Seattle) be divided to provide better police coverage. The SPC fact sheet on the Southwest Precinct stated: "When the new Southwest Precinct station opened on March 24, 2003, the South Precinct was split into southeast and southwest precincts, with the dividing line at Interstate 5."
