I reported last November about the opening of the new South Tower of the Maricopa County Superior Court. The demands placed on a writer by the need for punchy headlines made me inscribe “Court Tower Opens.” Of course, that was only partially true.
On Friday, November 11, the courthouse was, indeed, open—for a dedication ceremony. That is when the judges and administrators took possession of the building Certificate of Occupancy. It was a nice occasion.
Today, however, the South Tower is officially open for business. Public tours run from 9:00 a.m. and throughout the day, and the official official official ceremony occurs at 3:00 p.m.
Much to my pleasant surprise, the terrific communications folks at the court have put together a video that describes some of the unique building’s most noteworthy features. The court’s multimedia journalist Kelly Vail and ASU intern Liz Kotalik produced the video called (appropriately) “Quick Tour of the New South Court Tower.”
And as I pointed out before, the Tower has its own web page.
Take a look and try to come on down. I may see you there.
