The Courthouses and Judicial Residences Programme, in the Ministry of Justice, is projected to spend $402 million this fiscal year on construction and improvements to court houses, including the Supreme Court.
For this fiscal year, the provision for construction and improvements to court houses will facilitate the purchase of a National Commercial Bank (NCB) building, at 52-54 King Street, Kingston, as well as renovation of the basement, ground and first floor to become part of an extended Supreme Court complex.
The acquisition of the building will be the latest development in the Ministry’s long term plan to create a Justice Square in downtown Kingston.
The Ministry is also seeking to acquire another building on King Street to expand the Supreme Court by building via a bridge to that location.
The provision will also cover expenses to lease properties to accommodate the St. James’ family court and the Kingston Traffic and Coroners court.
