Courthouse Tower Takes Place on Skyline
Construction workers “topped off” the 20th floor of the new Broward County Courthouse tower on February 7, 2014. With the ongoing installation of exterior precast panels and glass, the future state-of-the-art LEED-certified building is beginning to take final shape. Estimated completion date is Summer 2015.
Installation of the structural steel for the front entrance canopy and columns for the elevated bridge which will connect the new tower to the jail and the existing Courthouse’s north and east wings is also underway. Estimated completion date is Spring 2014.
1,000 Car Garage to Open in May
The new 1,000-car courthouse garage will open to employees in May 2014. Crews are now installing striping and completing the elevators. Decorative trellises and protective canopies have been installed along Andrews Avenue. Other finishing touches will include planters, landscaping and sidewalk work.
Courthouse is Mayor’s “Broward Means Business” Moment
Broward County's new courthouse was featured in Mayor Barbara Sharief's "Broward Means Business" Moment at a recent County Commission meeting. The 714,000 square foot structure is one of the largest courthouses in the U.S. The $220 million project has generated 2,400 jobs.
