Number of courtrooms
Number of stories in Norfolk Courts Complex
Located in the Civic Center Plaza, the eight-story building will combine the General District, Circuit, Juvenile & Domestic Relation Courts and associated Clerks and related agencies, contributing to the City’s goal for the urban revitalization of downtown Norfolk. The new combined courthouse will contain twenty-one courtrooms, along with all necessary support facilities, secure parking, and direct prisoner access to the existing jail. Co-locating the three courts will provide a safer, more secure and efficient building, while providing long term operational flexibility to accommodate the future growth needs of the courts.
The new building will be anchored in a landscaped civic plaza for use by both city employees and members of the public alike.
