Planned federal courthouse to be 'bridge' between Mobile's business, De Tonti districts

New Federal Courthouse Mobile

Lee Becker, a partner with Hartman-Cox Architects in Washington, told Mobilians that his firm envisions the building serving as a “bridge” between the overlapping central business district and the De Tonti Square Historic District. He said the design team spent time in Mobile getting to know the surroundings and the history.
Our goal is to try to understand the character of the place and design a building that fits Mobile. Our goal here is to have this be the best experience of government that works.
