Savannah Tomochichi Courthouse

In 2016, GSA announced Congress appropriated funds for multiple Federal Courthouse construction projects across the nation, including modernizing the historic Tomochichi Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Savannah, Georgia, to meet the Federal Judiciary’s current and long-term needs for security, accessibility and operational efficiency.

Current status

This project is in the Concept Design phase and is dependent on the completion of the new annex currently under construction as well as private lease space to serve as “swing space” during the Tomochichi renovation. The new courthouse annex will serve as a new home for Bankruptcy Court as well as Probation.

Latest updates

GSA’s project team is completing the execution of a swing space lease. Liollio Architecture and Hartman-Cox Architects are well into the Concept phase of the Design.

Next milestone

The project team will submit the Final Concept to the PBS Commissioner for approval to proceed in late August.
