The existing plaza and green spaces will be redesigned to invite public use of the space. The green space will include a water fountain, new trees, benches and a Memorial Walkway to receive the memorial plaques that will be relocated to allow for the construction of the Annex. Refer to the site plan image for the location of the Memorial Walkway.

The project consists of three phases. Phase one includes the existing Judicial Center HVAC renovation for floor 6-9 and the penthouse roof . Phase two includes the construction of the Annex and the phase three encompasses the interior renovation and upgrades of the remaining area of the existing Judicial Center.
