The New San Diego Courthouse
The new downtown 71-courtroom, 23-story, 704,000-gsf Superior Courthouse consolidates the interdisciplinary programs of the existing Criminal, Civil, Family and Probate court departments into a single facility. It leverages operational efficiencies and connectivity with the adjacent Hall of Justice through a bridge and with the Central Jail through a future tunnel. A future park on its eastern edge will redefine the area and the courthouse as an iconic landmark, anchoring a major public civic space. The transparency of the podium enhances the community’s access to justice and provides natural light and views inside the building. Parking and holding are located in the basements; the first three interconnected levels house the high-volume courts, which are also visually connected. Family, Civil, Probate and Criminal Courts are stacked above each other. This configuration allows for interdisciplinary contact and flexibility as judicial caseloads change. LEED Silver certification is a minimum target.
