Also known as the Justice Adolphus A. Birch Building and before that it was the Beverly Briley Building.
The New Courthouse, which is practically across the street from the old still-in-use courthouse, was completed in 2006, is 6 floors and 128 ' tall. It was completed at a cost of just over $40 Million, has 16 courtrooms, a mixed-use jail, connects to the Ben West building on the right and has a sky-bridge over 2nd Ave. N. on the left which connects to the Criminal Justice Center.

Beverly Briley was mayor of Nashville from 1963-75. Adolphus Birch was the first African-American to serve as Chief Justice of the Tennessee Supreme Court.
