Old City Hall

Phoenix City Hall is the city hall for the City of Phoenix, Arizona, United States. Located in Downtown Phoenix, the building rises 20 floors and 368 feet (112 m) in height.[1] Designed by architectural firm Langdon Wilson, Phoenix City Hall began construction in 1992 and was completed in 1994.[2] This city hall replaced the former city hall which was located in the Calvin C. Goode Municipal Building (commonly known as Old City Hall).[2] The total cost to build city hall, construct its adjacent parking garage and renovate the Old City Hall was US$83 million.[2]

The Calvin Goode Municipal Building is not the same edifice as "Old City Hall", which is located across the Plaza. "Old City Hall" is a duplex style structure with the original Maricopa County Courthouse, designed in 1928 by Lescher & Mahoney and Edward Nield, whose main entrance faces Washington Street. The Old City Hall entrance faces west, what used to be 2nd Ave but is now a memorial plaza between the building and the Calvin Goode Building. All three of these structures are on the south side of Washington Street, the current City Hall tower is on the north.
