Moseley Architects was selected to re-validate an earlier program and design this 1000-bed expansion and renovation to the downtown jail. Located directly adjacent to the existing building, the new high rise addition will include jail administration space, intake areas, kitchen, laundry, and law enforcement spaces. The new facility includes core spaces for 1,600 total inmates (inclusive of the 400-bed capacity of the existing jail). Core functions include new vehicular sallyport sized for buses, intake and booking areas to include holding cells, magistrate area, courtroom space, officers’ station, dress/shower facilities, property issue and storage. The administrative area includes records, public and staff toilet and locker facilities, pre-trial services, training and fitness areas. Public video visitation is located directly off of the public lobby.
