Shelby County Jail Annex
The Annex comprises a new high-volume intake center on the ground floor with all related agencies, reducing the time required to process arrests. The new sally port and intake center are located on the quiet side street, Washington Avenue. To improve access, all public functions such as visitation, processing, records, warrants and clerk services occur off the new north entrance facing Poplar Avenue, identified by the sweeping aluminum wall and cornice. This area becomes the front door to the existing 2,000-bed Justice Complex, solving existing traffic flow problems and providing for future expansion. Upper floors provide four new 64-bed housing units for a total of 256 beds plus dedicated program and exercise space.
The Crump Firm also completed the design of an $8 million kitchen immediately to the east of the Shelby County Jail Annex.
