RAMSEY COUNTY JUVENILE CENTER
ST. PAUL, MN
The Ramsey County Juvenile Service Center brings together, in a single downtown location, diverse services for juvenile offenders. The goal of this centralized facility is to provide around-the-clock, expeditious handling of juvenile cases which are often beyond the capability of neighborhood services.
The project used an existing 50-year old warehouse structure, which was extensively remodeled to provide office space, courtrooms and recreational facilities in four levels. A new three-story addition to the north provides detention space for 30 youths, outdoor recreation, ancillary services, and an enclosed parking garage.
