Architectural firm Silling Architects has been selected to design the Cabarrus County Courthouse expansion project.

Construction on the 250,000-sq.-ft. expansion is expected to begin in 2020 and last between 24 and 28 months.

The courthouse expansion will alleviate increased demand for courthouse activities and update the antiquated 45-year-old building. The project includes a proposal to relocate the courthouse entrance to Means Avenue, creating easy access from Church and Union streets.

The change will create a public space between the Cabarrus County Historic Courthouse (65 Union St. S) and the historic bank building (51 Union St. S), along with a pedestrian thoroughfare along Means Avenue between Church and Union streets.

The existing courthouse facing Union Street will continue operation during construction.
