PlanNet is pleased to announce its invitation to be part of the Clark Construction Group/AC Martin Partners, Hall of Justice Design/Build project team.

Built in 1925, the Hall of Justice building was home to the District’s Attorney’s Office and Sheriff Department until the January 17, 1994, 6.7 magnitude Northridge earthquake damaged the building.  The $231 million renovation started in August, 2011 and is expected to be completed by late 2014.

The project will transform 13 stories and 304,600 square feet of usable space into a modern-day office space that also maintains architectural elements from the past.

The Hall of Justice has its share of infamous history while serving as the headquarters of the sheriff, district attorney, public defender, coroner and Superior Court for nearly 70 years. The autopsies of Robert Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe were conducted in the Hall of Justice, as were the trials of Charles Manson and Sirhan Sirhan. Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel, Richard “The Night Stalker” Ramirez and actor Robert Mitchum were also kept behind bars within this facility, making it a fascinating historical monument.
