Photo of the Week

It appears that they used the shell of the building and built within and out. There are less windows now and the structure that was originally above the second floor was not rebuilt but a third floor constructed above the second floor. I found an article on the web that put out bids to rebuild the building back in 2013 at an estimated cost of $9 million to rebuild.
I found out that this building was home to the Panama Maritime Tribunal when it burned. According to the Panama Guide website it was figured that the fire was caused by arson.
According to an article from the TradeWinds - The Global Shipping News Source - February 25th, 2016 the Panama Maritime Courts are moving back into the old court house.
You can see in these photos an underground parking, a generator and fire escapes enclosed with glass or Plexiglas.
They did a great job bringing this historic old building back to life again.
