The courthouse would include 14 new courtrooms offices, courtyard/plazas and pedestrian pathways, a payment window, court support and jury facilities, a secure sallyport for transfer of custody, and a secured parking area for judges. Development of the new courthouse would add a total of approximately 207,300 building gross square feet (BGSF) to the existing structure, for a total of approximately 240,600 BGSF. The new city hall would be located near the southern project boundary and contain approximately 40,000 gross square feet within a two-story structure. The proposed library expansion would result in an additional 3,050 square feet of floor space and would occur adjacent to the existing library along Crown Valley Parkway. The potential 61,000-square foot office building would be located at the northeast corner of the project site at the intersection of Pacific Island Drive and Alicia Parkway, The proposed project would also include a surface parking lot with approximately 990 parking spaces for the new courthouse building.
