Originally built for $10 million and occupied in 1997, the courthouse provided much-needed space in a lease back arrangement between the GSA and the private developer/owner. Due to mold issues developed over time, personnel were relocated out of the building in 2015. GSA assumed ownership of the building in 2017 and addressed the buildings concerns.

TLC supported the design team with energy modeling to identify appropriate energy conservation measures and the potential for LEED certification.
