This replacement judicial facility anchors a consolidated criminal justice development that includes an adult detention facility and juvenile justice center. The new tower building and landscape spaces are arranged to meet functional requirements while creating a sense of place and arrival for the newly formed campus. Located away from the urban core on a repurposed brownfield industrial site with an associated neighborhood originally comprised to support the former factory, the new campus for consolidated justice becomes a catalyst for reinvestment in the neighborhood.
SLAM, along with Schmidt Architects served as Architect of Record. HOK served as Criteria Design Architect.
The project goal was to unify scattered city law enforcement and judiciary operations while revitalizing the Twin Aire Neighborhood on the east side of Indianapolis.
The new campus for consolidated justice increases occupancy and foot traffic, giving a financial boost to the community. The state-of-the-art courtrooms and hearing rooms provide a “best practice” courthouse, which provide a sustainable, accessible and secure environment for all participants.
