The bold and modern design of the Mobile Government Plaza makes it a symbol for Mobile entry into the 21st century. The building also creates an exciting new context for its historic neighbors.

The three-member Mobile County Commission built the facility to consolidate city and county services in a convenient downtown location. Some county and city offices were spread out over Mobile County, so the Commission felt it would save tax dollars to build a facility to centralize services in downtown. Commissioners at the time this project began were Samuel L. Jones, Jim Mason and Bill Menton.

Instead of using one general contractor to build the Plaza, the Commission opted for a construction management team. The joint venture of Hardin Construction Group Inc., an Atlanta, Georgia firm, and Haston Construction Co. of Mobile managed the project. Construction was broken into 31 smaller bid categories to maximize local participation.

The Plaza consists of two building - a nine-story Judicial building and a ten-story Administration building. These two towers are joined by a massive 50,000 square-foot public atrium.
