Escambia County Correctional Facility
This new facility is anchoring a redevelopment initiative for an economically depressed section of Pensacola. It was specifically designed to complement future commercial office and retail neighbors and “not look like a jail”.
The three-story correctional facility is designed and constructed to house 720 inmates and includes a secure sallyport, an inmate intake and receiving area, dining and kitchen service areas that serve both the old and new facilities.
Having participated in the selection, funding and managing of the new jail, County Commissioners worked together with the Whitesell-Green/Caddell JV to leave a lasting legacy for their constituents.
