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 2018, the County solicited proposals from private partners interested in both providing land for the project and providing a building meeting the County's performance specifications. Through this competitive process, Travis County Courthouse Development Partners (TCCDP), a consortium led by an affiliate of Hunt Companies, Inc., was selected by unanimous vote of the Commissioners in July 2018 to move forward under a pre-development agreement. The project financing closed on schedule in April 2019 and construction permits were issued within ten days.

THE CONCEPTUAL PLAN INCLUDES:

  • 25 courtrooms
  • Dedicated, appropriate spaces for child testimony
  • Short-term child drop-off center
  • Large multi-function room that can be used for public events
  • Great access from all parts of the County
  • Law Library and Self-Help center
  • Community plaza
  • 4-level underground garage for staff and public parking and separate secure judicial parking
  • Separate secure entrance, holding and circulation areas for persons in custody
  • Thoughtfully designed to allow additional courtrooms to be added in the future
  • Design for an adjacent building over the plaza for future expansion

The courthouse facility is scheduled to be complete in 2022.
