The U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building project included a 16 story with penthouses and two levels of parking below. The building housed the facilities for the U.S. District Courts, Magistrate Courts, Bankruptcy Courts, Marshal’s Offices & supporting functions.
The building is highly visible , dominating the Sacramento Skyline. At 346 ft., it is one of the tallest buildings in the City’s history and said to be its largest single-building construction project. Although it has 16 stories, its height equals a 30-story bulding because some of the courtrooms have stately, high-vaulted ceilings.
