New renderings released this week paint a better picture of what Gwinnett County’s long-awaited, $75 million courthouse expansion will look like when it’s completed in 2020.
The Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center opened in 1988 and houses courtrooms and other criminal justice operations, as well as administrative offices like the Board of Commissioners and the tax assessor. The expansion project will include adding a brand new 180,000-square-foot building with a larger jury assembly room, four additional courtrooms and room for several more to be added in the future.

A brand new parking deck will have 1,500 parking spaces — nearly double the 840 spaces in the existing deck. The current parking lot will remain open as well.
The project, which will be paid for by local sales tax dollars, was planned years ago but delayed by the Great Recession. Gwinnett’s Board of Commissioners was shown new renderings during a recent briefing on the project, and a selection of those renderings can be found below.
