    New federal courthouse

    It's official, construction will begin in a few months on a new 155,600 sq. ft., five-story courthouse in downtown Mobile! The new courthouse, with a far more traditional design than the original, will occupy one city block rather than most of two as called for in the Safdie concept. An $89 million construction contract was awarded for the two-phase federal courthouse project. The new federal courthouse, bounded by St. Joseph, St. Louis, Conception and St. Anthony streets, should be complete by December 2018. Phase two, renovation of the existing courthouse across the street, should be complete by October 2020. Alabama limestone will be used in the project. Planned courthouse to be bridge between Mobile's business, De Tonti districts $89 million construction contract awarded for new federal courthouse
