Construction work continues on the Honorable Frank J. Guarini Justice Complex with the new Hudson County courthouse project approximately 75% complete on track for a late 2024 completion.
Significant interior work has begun and is ongoing, including sheet rock, flooring, woodwork, priming for painting, and finishes. Installation of permanent electric service to the building is expected this coming fall.
Designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects and located in Jersey City, New Jersey, the new Justice Complex will house 24 Courtrooms (2 Civil, 10 Criminal, and 12 Family), Hearing and Mediation Rooms, Grand Jury, and Jury Assembly spaces. Courts Administration, the Hudson County Prosecutor, the Surrogate, and the Sheriff’s Department will also have office space in the building. Amenities will include a 75-seat public cafeteria, a self-help law library, a children’s play area, and training spaces for staff.
