GSA Awards Lease for New U.S. Courthouse in Panama City

August 15, 2018

ATLANTA -- The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) awarded a 20-year lease to the Bay County Board of Commissioners for a new federal courthouse in Panama City, Florida.

Currently the site of the Bay County Juvenile Justice Courthouse, the 25,695-square-foot facility will soon house the U.S. District Court for Northern District of Florida, as well as creating workspace for the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Probation Office.

This new lease was selected based on a competitive best-value procurement process. Following two years of agreed-upon rental incentives, the lease will provide Bay County approximately $1.06 million in additional revenue annually.

“When we set out to help find a new home for the U.S. Courts in Panama City, our goal was to ensure both the security and workspace needs of the judiciary were met while remaining fiscally responsible to taxpayers,” said Mike Goodwin, regional commissioner for GSA’s Public Buildings Service.
