Project Details

The new Crittenden County Judicial Center is set to be situated on the current courthouse square in downtown Marion, and is expected to span approximately 23,000 SF over two stories. The duration of the construction process, which includes the demolition of the existing courthouse, is estimated to take between 20-22 months.

The Crittenden County Project Development Board, led by Judge Executive Newcom, has approved a design that pays homage to the historical context of the courthouse square. The exterior will incorporate some features of a previous courthouse, with a brick exterior and limestone trim elements, as well as traditional design elements such as corner pilasters and a limestone arched entry. The design will also feature a square roof tower with a crenellated parapet, inspired by the previous historic courthouse. The sloped prefinished metal roof completes the traditional design.

Inside, a grand staircase leads to an interior balcony and public waiting area with ample natural light provided by generous windows to the exterior. The interior will also feature stained hardwood millwork throughout, along with terrazzo floors and stone tile wainscoting in the public areas.
