The Daniel Patrick Moynihan Federal Courthouse, located in the judicial and governmental center of New York City, is designed to accommodate the growing needs of an expanding judiciary as well as related operations and services. RicciGreene Associates, as judicial design consultant for lead architect Kohn Pederson Fox, was responsible for evaluating the operational performance of the building designs to ensure adherence to federal standards, overall efficiency, and integration of security. 

The program for this ambitious project called for a 27-story, 900,000-square-foot federal courthouse that provides 44 courtrooms, one ceremonial courtroom, and 42 new judges chambers. In addition, ample archival facilities were designed for current-record storage and retrieval. The building features state-of-the-art security, newly revised courtroom space standards and barrier-free accessibility. The design, executed by the firm of Kohn Pederson Fox Associates, is intended to "bring the square together" by integrating the new facility into the existing fabric of Foley Square.
