Greenville May Soon Say Goodbye To Steinmart Square

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — The writing may be on the wall for Steinmart Square in Greenville. The General Services Administration in Washington is recommending that a new $40.1M Federal Courthouse in Greenville be built on the site. That recommendation comes in an environmental impact study released over the weekend. Three downtown sites had been in the running for the new courthouse – the old Elk’s lodge at 508 Washington Avenue, a site along the Lake Ferguson Levee, and Steinmart Square. The Elk’s site was ruled out in July. If the recommendation is accepted site acquisition of Steinmart Square will come later. The new 62,000 square foot courthouse will provide two courtrooms with three judicial chambers for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi. Other tenants will include the U.S. Marshals Service, the Office of the U.S. Attorneys, the Office of the Federal Public Defender, and the U.S. Probation Services Office. The project is scheduled for completion in 2021.
