Olive Branch, Mississippi is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. This 35,000 s.f. City Hall was developed to address expanding city administrative functions to keep pace with city growth. The new City Hall is situated in Olive Branch's historic downtown district. The traditional design is inspired by historic courthouses of the Old South and compliments adjacent historic buildings. The building houses the mayor's administration, city planning and city utility offices. The project helped to create a distinct government center for the city while still preserving the rich architectural history of the area.
