Bond election slated for May for Travis County civil courthouse

But whatever the amount, it would pay for a downtown civil courthouse that, according to the latest plans, would stand 14 stories high, climbing about 270 feet, and contain 520,000 square feet of space. Underground would be a four-story garage with 548 parking spaces.

At recent meetings, including Tuesday’s, the Commissioners Court has heard plans from consultants for how much space the courthouse will contain and what that space will be used for — key factors in drilling down the cost of the building.

Those plans say the courthouse, slated to be complete in 2018, would include offices for 35 judges and 33 courtrooms, offices for nine other county departments and space for nonprofit agencies and a law library.

Austin has been seeking more creative solutions to Austin's growing pains, and an unlikely duo on City Council may be taking that directive seriously.

On Tuesday afternoon, Council Member Don Zimmerman said Council Member Ora Houston has joined him in lobbying of Travis County Commissioners Court to build its new county courthouse in East Austin instead of downtown.

Hunt-Led Team Secures Project for the New Courts Facility in Travis County, Texas

Quote:
EL PASO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hunt Companies, Inc. (Hunt) today announced a consortium led by an affiliate of Hunt has been selected by the Travis County Commissioners Court to develop a 430,000-square-foot civil and family courthouse facility.

The county has been working on plans to replace the Heman Marion Sweatt Courthouse, which opened in 1931, for more than a decade. In February, the Travis County Commissioners Court voted to solicit proposals from private partners interested in both putting up land for the project and providing a building meeting the County’s performance specifications. Through this competitive process, TCCDP was selected by unanimous vote of the Commissioners to move forward in exclusive negotiations for a development agreement.

“Hunt is strategically focused on both Texas geographically and justice and corrections vertically as its core markets and has structured its business to provide the fully integrated scope of design, build, finance, and lifecycle management of a court facility such as Travis County’s,” according to Rodney Moss, Sr. Vice President for Hunt and project lead for Hunt. “We are delighted that Travis County has chosen our site and our team to negotiate the development agreement for this landmark project for the citizens of Travis County.”

When the development agreement is finalized, the facility will be built at TCCDP’s proposed site located between Guadalupe and San Antonio on the east and west and 17th Street and 18th Street on the north and south. The location is approximately six blocks from the County’s core functions and equidistant to the prior site for the Project at 308 Guadalupe, making it a very efficient site for the new courthouse.

The courthouse facility is scheduled to complete in the fourth quarter of 2022.
