The Bronx County Hall of Justice occupies two and a half city blocks just east of the Grand Concourse. It opened in 2007 as a home for the growing Bronx Supreme and Criminal courts.

The 10-story steel-framed courthouse is at the corner of Grant Avenue. The prominent exterior feature is a corrugated glass and aluminum curtain wall that maximizes the interior use of available daylight. Inside, innovative 20-foot cantilevered staircases on two sides of the structure allow for column-free perimeters on courtroom floors.

The 775,000-square-foot courthouse has 47 court parts for the Supreme and Criminal courts and seven grand jury rooms, as well as offices for the New York City Department of Correction, the Department of Probation, and the Bronx District Attorney.
