Tribunal has its headquarters in Unirii Boulevard in Bucharest, the place of the former Junior shop. The building hosting the court for Sector 2, was inaugurated on February 2, 2009. The surface of the building is 27,000 sq meters and has 8 levels, 6 to the surface and 2 underground. The new construction headquarters of the Bucharest Court of Justice Ministry has cost over 500 billion ROL, money from a loan granted by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Romanian government.
This court building is the result of the reconstruction of Junior, known as Mirror shop. Junior was originally inaugurated in 1987 but was not too successful in Bucharest. Before being closed, after only 5 years from the inauguration, it was only used for commercial use on the ground floor, with the remaining space unused. The building remained unused until 1999, when it reached the attention of the government and the property was declared of public utility and national interest. The building was allocated to the Ministry of Justice, which originally intended to move into this space, the High Court of Cassation and Justice. After the latter refused to move in this space, the Ministry of Justice decided to move their own new headquarters for the Court of Bucharest, Sector 2. From the old building were kept the atrium, called lobby, stairs and the old halls. The rest being totally rebuilt.
The building was rebuilt so as to correspond to international standards and ensure proper operation and action of justice. The basement, consisting of two levels is an area comparable to subteranean construction. Here on one level, are located the accused, according to sex and age. Cells are built to European standards, each room is equipped with sanitary installations and air conditioning. On the other level there is space for the court clerks, records, spaces for building security, and a parking lot.
The floor area is intended for public services, archives, registry offices service judge, prosecutors and lawyers. Two floors present 26 court halls, conference rooms and offices for judges. The last three stories have restricted public access, for court staff. Although the deadline of construction was 2003, until 2008 the building was once used as headquarters of the Tribunal.
The original documents and case files were transfered to the new location by the employees of the Tribunal's own Archives and Registry, Bucharest, and helped by the inmates from the penitentiary of Rahova and Jilava.
