The U.S. General Services Administration is seeking money to build a new U.S. Courthouse in Harrisburg.
According to a report in the Central Penn Business Journal, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) confirmed that $137.2 million for the new courthouse funding is included in a $1.3 trillion federal budget bill that is moving through Congress.
The new 243,000-sq. ft. courthouse will be located at 6th and Reily streets in Harrisburg. The courthouse will contain a total of eight courtrooms and eleven chambers. Tenants for the new building will be the Pennsylvania 3rd Circuit U.S. Courts, U.S. Courts, U.S. Marshal Service, U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Trustees.
The project is currently in design phase as the GSA is seeking construction funds. Mascaro Construction will serve as the project’s constructor, according to the GSA.
