This is the County’s first LEED Silver Certified “Green” building. The project includes the consolidation of three existing separate court facilities into a single building. These include the Domestic Violence Court located at 1340 S. Michigan Avenue, the Criminal Misdemeanor Courts located at 11th and State and the Civil Order of Protection Courts located at 28 N. Clark. The existing 165,000 square foot, four- story building was completely renovated and houses nine new court rooms and associated judicial and jury support spaces as well as space for various social services, adult probation, children’s advocacy, Chicago Police and others.
