Lon Evans Correctional Center — Fort Worth, Texas


The new maximum-security Tarrant County jail is a five-story facility that primarily contains single-occupancy cells for male and female inmates, medical facilities for male inmates (female inmates use Tarrant County Corrections Center's medical facilities), and a new kitchen that will serve the entire downtown campus, their Cold Spring facility and, in some capacity, their Green Bay facility. This new jail is located between Weatherford and Belknap streets and Cherry and Burnett streets, next to the existing Tarrant County Corrections Center. Bennett Benner Partners teamed with David M. Schwarz for the design of the exterior skin and with Wiginton Hooker Jeffry Architects for the design of the interior workings of the jail.
