The new Queen Civil Court is located next to the existing Supreme Court. The building is 315,000 square feet and houses twenty courtrooms, including the Calendar Courtroom and a large courtroom for Landlord/Tenant and Small Claims proceedings. It also contains the offices of the Clerk of the County of the Civil Court, the Queens Division of the Office of the Corporation Counsel , and the main jury facilities for both courthouses. The building also has two underground garage levels providing approximately 250 parking spaces, including twenty secured spaces for judges.A 10,000 square foot public plaza is located along Sutphin Boulevard to relate the new build- ing with the existing Supreme Court, forming the new Queens Civil Justice Complex. The existing building was done in an elaborate Neoclassical style which could not affordably be copied, nor would it necessarily have been appropriate as the exterior expression of a modern, state-of-the-art facility. A Indiana limestone was selected for the new building which closely matches the stone of the existing building. The overall massing of the new building is similar to the existing one and completes a composition which creates the appearance of a single extended complex.The Interior is filled with light from the glass curtain wall which angles with the street and forms a wedge that defines the four-story public circulation space. The choice of finishes, terrazzo floors and stone walls in the public areas and wood paneling and cork floors in the courtrooms, are designed to maximize easy maintenance and respect for the judicial process.
