The Central Coast Complex will include office space for a variety of county functions, including a fifth police precinct.
The purchase of the property cost about $2 million and the total project cost is an estimated $25 million.
Back in September, the county council approved the bond issuance that included funding for the Central Coast Complex.
The project is expected to go out for bids in the middle of next year and after that process is complete, the county will have a projected construction timeline for the Central Coast Complex.
