The $36 million proposal from First Choice would also put the three courts into two buildings. The current site of the General District Court on Princess Anne Street would be renovated to house the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
A new building would be constructed at the corner of Princess Anne and Charlotte streets to house the Circuit Court and General District Court.
The two buildings would be connected by a tunnel. It would take 30 months to complete.
The $34 million proposal from Donley's would put the courthouse at the site of the fire station, at Princess Anne and Wolfe streets.
The four-story building would have all three courts together.
The project would take about 44 months to complete.
Cameron said he doesn't expect the City Council to make a decision at the tentative Aug. 23 work session.
