JUD – Council Bluffs is a 28,900 leased square foot build-to-suit facility constructed in 2021 and 100% leased to the General Services Administration (GSA) on behalf of the U.S. District Court. This property is under a 20-year non-cancelable lease that does not expire until 2041. The lease also features two five-year renewal options that, if exercised, would extend the lease until 2051. As part of the Eighth Judicial Circuit, this property serves the Western Division of the Southern District of Iowa.
The recently constructed facility is occupied by all three branches of government: The Judiciary includes a district clerk’s office, a bankruptcy clerk’s office, a probation and pre-trial services office, and the public defender’s office. Offices for both the US Attorneys and US Marshals Service represent the Executive Branch. And finally, district offices for Iowa’s two U.S. Senators represent the Legislative Branch.
