All United States Courts personnel have completed their move from the former John H. Wood Jr. Federal Courthouse in Hemisfair into the new federal courthouse at 214 W. Nueva St., according to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). The new three-story, 235,000-square-foot building includes eight courtrooms and 13 chambers, and was built via $144 million in Congressional funding in 2016 for new courthouses. “We’ve been slightly ahead of schedule and slightly under budget,” said U.S. District Judge Xavier Rodriguez, who spearheaded the effort on behalf of the Federal Judiciary. The limestone-clad building is supposed to also house personnel with the offices of the U.S. Attorneys, U.S. Marshals Service, the GSA, among other federal agencies. — Heron staff
