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.

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 CONCEPTUAL PLAN INCLUDES:

  • Includes 25 courtrooms
  • Dedicated and appropriate spaces for child to testify
  • Short-term child drop-off center for those using the courts
  • Dedicated, separate, and safe victim waiting areas
  • Centrally located, access from all parts of the County
  • State-of-the-art Law Library and Self-Help center
  • Space for attorney-client conferences
  • Large multi-function room that can be used for public events

THE COURTHOUSE FACILITY IS SCHEDULED TO COMPLETE IN 2023
