Bexar County Justice Cntr. 10 floors - DT San Antonio
 
I just heard on Woai that ground was broken today for a new 10 story justice center downtown. The information is also on the Bexar County website but there is no rendering. Does anyone know anything concerning this project?

Interesting. 10 floors is pretty good actually. The one in Austin is only 11 floors, but it's 204 feet tall.

I saw a rendering on KSAT 12 at the 5 o'clock news. It went by to fast, its a rectangular box from what i could tell...

{SA} 10-Story Justice Center Breaks Ground Downtown
 
A while back I mentioned a 10 story building that was planned near the Bexar County Courthouse, well, it turns out it's a new 200,000 sq foot Justice center that will house the D.A. and other local government positions and offices.

Any pictures of what this building will look like

By assuming they'll have the lobby floor taller, it'll probably be as tall as the Texas Building on Houston or the building thats attatched with a skywalk to the CPS garage/offices.
I wonder if they'll be working on the garage addition simultaneously?

Sounds like this could add some density.

The building will be located in the surface parking lot at Nueva and Main (its behind the Justice Center)

That link doesn't work.

Go to the County webpage, then click News Releases on the first page. The Justice Center piece is the first one.

Cool... does this have anything to do with the new SAPD HQ or is that something completely different.

Completely separate.

Thanks. Does anyone know of a rendering yet? I checked KSAT's website, but nothing yet.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think there's three gov't buildings lined up: this one, the Federal Courthouse, and the Police HQ.

^^^ I think you're right, aren't they all going to be built on the same property or something, wasn't that the plan?

No.

The JC is near the Bexar courthouse and adjacent to the current JC.

The Federal Courthouse will be built on the current SAPD HQ.

The SAPD/SAFD HQ will be built on the old Kmart site which is down the street from the current SAPD.

SKW, maybe you could whip up a map and set us all straight :tup:

verbl Sep 18, 2008 6:10 PM
