Background

The Supreme Court Complex is presently occupying a lot that is owned by the University of the Philippines, and the office spaces are not ideal for a productive working environment. On October 2, 2015, the Supreme Court and the Bases Conversion Development Authority executed the Contract for the acquisition of a 2.1-hectare land in Fort Bonifacio, Global City which will serve as the site of the New Supreme Court Complex, and the ceremonial groundbreaking was held with the President of the Republic, His Excellency Benigno C. Aquino III, as the guest of honor.

The Department of Budget and Management issued a multi-year obligational authority in the amount of P 3.28 billion to fund the design and construction of the New Supreme Court Complex over the course of 4 years.

Vision

The Supreme Court envisions its new home to be a culturally iconic building and a legacy for generations to come. It aims to build a green and resilient building for the efficient and effective dispensation of justice.
