Blast from the Past: Civic Center’s Denver Justice Center

In May 2005, Denver voters approved the construction of the Denver Justice Center, a three-building facility (courthouse, detention facility, and parking garage) built along West 14th Avenue between Delaware and Fox streets in Denver’s Civic Center district.

Construction began on the parking garage in the fall of 2006 with work on the courthouse and detention facility commencing in the summer of 2007. In this photo taken on April 12, 2008, the courthouse (left) and detention facility (right) are starting to go vertical.

The complex would open as the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse and Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center in the summer of 2010.

    Instead of investing in schools and intra-city transportation we invested in a prison. Sign of the times!
