The County has been working on plans to replace the Heman Marion Sweatt Travis County 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 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.

This Progressive Public-Private Partnership (P3) Project was nominated for three national P3 awards in 2020, including "Best Social Infrastructure Project" of the year. The facility is within budget, currently three months ahead of schedule, and will be completed in late 2022.

THE SITE PLAN INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:

  • A state-of-the-art Law Library and Self- Help center
  • Gathering spaces for attorney-client conferences
  • Space for short-term child drop-off center for those using the courts
  • Dedicated, appropriate spaces for child testimony
  • 4-level underground parking garage with 400 spaces
  • Secured judicial access and circulation
  • Separate and secured entrance for persons in custody
  • Separate and secured holding and circulation areas for persons in custody
  • "Great Streets" concept, which focuses on walkability and public engagement and includes 18-foot sidewalks, tree plantings, benches and bike racks
  • Accessible to people who walk, bike, drive and take the bus (15 bus routes)

The courthouse facility is scheduled to be complete in 2022.
