Document Description
The AOC proposes to construct a three-story, approximately 118,000-gross-building-sq. ft. courthouse containing nine courtrooms in the City of South Gate for the Superior Court. The site for the Proposed Project is located on two contiguous parcels at 4070-4100 Ardmore Avenue and 4095-4101 Firestone Boulevard, in the City of South Gate, County of Los Angeles, CA. The County of Los Angeles assessor's parcel numbers (APNs) for the properties are 6210-005-055, 6210-005-058, and 6210-005-059. The property consists of four contiguous parcels arranged in an L-shaped pattern, totaling approximately nine acres, which are currently developed with seven buildings constructed between 1956 and 1996 (existing buildings) with surrounding paved yards and parking areas. The Proposed Project would also include surface parking and secured, underground spaces. The new courthouse would consolidate two court facilities: the existing Huntington Park Courthouse, which has six courtrooms, and the former South Gate Courthouse, which had three courtrooms. The proposed new courthouse would also have 95 non-judicial staff and 45 County of Los Angeles staff. The proposed new facility would provide a full range of services, including civil trails, criminal trail processing, deliberation rooms, holding areas for in custody detainees, and building facility support space. It would also include court administration space, including the court clerk, court security operations, jury assembly areas and public space.
