New U.S. Courthouse
The new U.S. Courthouse in Greenville, Mississippi will be an anchor for revitalization and future development in the City of Greenville. Its design is compatible with the character of the historic district while it reflects the dignity, enterprise, vigor, and stability of the United States Government. The new building is 55,700 GSF including three interior secure structured parking spaces. The courthouse will provide one District courtroom and one Magistrate courtroom. Tenant agencies will be the United States Fifth Circuit District and Magistrate Courts, United States Marshals Service, United States Probation Office, and GSA’s Public Buildings Service with trial prep space provided for the Federal Public Defender and United States Attorney’s Office.
The project, part of the GSA Design Excellence Program, is led by Jackson, Mississippi-based architectural firm Duvall Decker Architects. The co-lead designers are Roy T. Decker, FAIA of Duvall Decker and Steve Dumez, FAIA of Eskew Dumez Ripple.
