Courthouse Project

In June 2018, Howard County selected Edgemoor-Star America Judicial Partners to lead the design, construction, partial financing, and facility operation and maintenance of a new Circuit Courthouse on the site of the current Thomas Dorsey Building on Bendix Road.  The new facility will resolve deficiencies in the existing Courthouse, which was built 175 years ago.

The plan submitted by Edgemoor-Star America includes a 237,000 square foot courthouse that enhances safety and security.  The design features a four-story atrium, a large entryway that will provide safety screening for those entering the Courthouse and separate hallways and elevators for prisoners to enhance public safety. The plan also includes office spa
