San Diego New Central Courthouse
 Back to profile Page    Next Project 

Addressing the Superior Court's desire to modernize Court facilities, consolidate space in a central location, and accommodate the Court's growing need for many additional courtrooms, RGA, as a consultant to Skidmore Owings & Merrill, developed a space needs program for a New Central Courthouse and the adjacent Hall of Justice, a Civil Court building completed in the 1990's. 

The program developed by RicciGreene Associates includes 71 courtrooms, about 700,000 SF in the new building, and plans for a renovated Hall of Justice to hold additional courtrooms and the Courts Administration. 

The New Courthouse promises to vastly improve the downtown government district. Additionally, by providing a key link from the Central Business District to the western downtown, the New Courthouse could be a significant catalyst for the revitalization of downtown San Diego.
