The New Los Angeles US Courthouse, as the General Services Administration refers to the building, is a courthouse at 350 W. First Street in the Civic Center district of Downtown Los Angeles. It opened in October 2016.[1]

It is 10 stories tall with 533,000 square feet (49,500 m2) of floor space, containing 24 courtrooms and 32 judicial chambers and stands out in the downtown skyline with its impressive glass façade. Emphasis was on the building's being sustainable, secure and cost-effective, according to the GSA which oversaw the project to build the new courthouse, and to optimize court operations, address security concerns, and provide space for the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. It consolidates many functions that previously were spread across multiple buildings. Major tenants are the U.S. District Court serving the Central District of California, U.S. Marshals Service, GSA, Federal Public Defender (trial preparation space), and U.S. Attorneys Office (trial preparation space).[2]
