The new $555.5 million, 22-story state courthouse, just over a year away from completion, is taking shape at State and C streets in downtown San Diego.

The 704,000 square foot building will house 71 courtrooms at Union and C streets. It will feature significant improvements in security, as well as better safety and improved access and efficiency for county residents. A pedestrian bridge connects the three-story lobby atrium to the nearby Hall of Justice, which will continue to be used for civil cases.
