On March 4, 2014, the City of Indianapolis announced that three development teams have been short-listed to compete to design, build, finance, operate and maintain a new Marion County Consolidated Justice Facility. Replacing existing facilities, the proposed new facility will consolidate various aging and inefficient facilities throughout the county, and may house separate adult and juvenile detention, inmate processing, the prosecutor, public defender, probation and community corrections, clerk, coroner, crime lab and other state and federal agencies. The new complex will add 1,000 new jail beds and ease overflow of courtrooms in the City County Building.
The three short-listed teams are, in alphabetical order:
Indy Justice Partners
Equity Members: Fengate Capital Management Ltd., AECOM Global Fund I LP, Shiel Sexton Company, Inc.
Plenary Edgemoor Justice Partners
Equity Members: Plenary Group USA Ltd., Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate LLC
WMB Heartland Justice Partners
Equity Members: Meridiam Infrastructure Indy Justice, LLC, Balfour Beatty Investments, Inc., Walsh Investors, LLC
The City originally received five responses to its Request for Proposals and Qualifications (RFPQ). Over the coming weeks, the City will meet with the three short-listed development teams and plans to release a Request for Revised Proposals to the three teams by late spring with a due date late this summer. Finally, the City will then select a preferred developer group and submit the project to the City-County Council for approval.
Additional information about the teams, including non-equity local partners, is available on the project website
