You dont need a prison that has 500 cells. Just simply keep accepting more prisoners until you have 500. I had 200+ cells/prisoners and it allowed me to accept 300 more prisoners (500+/200+) and it popped.

however u will need 500prisoners in cells for grant if u are doing all achievements, or just add beds to your holding cell until u have room for 500 if u leave it for last

strategy above is fine. i got another way of doing things

5-6 achievements for the price of one - we start off following a strategy developed for another achievement. this guide assumes you have the basic knowledge of the game and/or at least enough to build a prison. quick buildings are the key to victory here. except for the giant holding cell which needs no beds, toilets or anything. just a designated giant room so intake picks up. if not, i only found 30 intakes at a time. with the room, 300 every 10 or so days. this strat took 50 in game days do to testing around and not including the reloads you should avoid with this strat

All I did for this one is:

1. Start a new game, on Federal. (we will use casual)
2. Build a giant holding cell. I'm not sure if this is actually necessary, since I didn't bother to hire guards either, so they just stayed in the deliveries area I created in step 3. (you do need this)
3. Build a really large deliveries area by the road.(10 squares deep from top to bottom along the road.)
4. Wait until your counter gets to about 125(300) total in the Intake area under Reports.
5. Accept all prisoners at once.

When they finally arrived, I unlocked this achievement along with Prison Hotel.

now keep doing that with 300 prisoners , letting them all die of starvation and when they are all dead hiring guards to remove the bodies, then remove all guards. we are going to save up 1.2 mil dollars by repeating steps 4-5 and step 6 which is let them die and rehire guards.

once you have 1.2 mil, save your game and sell your prison, dont sell it until you have gone 24 hrs without a death/escape. real easy when everyones dead to wait 24hrs.

next we build 5 offices, one for warden,(then research the following) chief, foreman, accountant, lawyer. research all the bureaucracy and get your we are going to build 3 sections of 50 cells, 2 kitchens on opposite sides of ea 50 cell block, 2 canteens as well as a hospital for each 50 cell block location. we are going to use logistics to make sure 25 cells goto one canteen and each kitchen serves 2 canteens. hire 70 cooks. hire 100 guards, get 150 inmates and save the game. once you have 300 inmates waiting in your intake save your game again, then summons your 300 (plus the 150 you got) and save when you have 450 @ 8amish, now immediately fire everyone except your accountant and a few chefs. then continue to spam all the inmates you can until you get your 500 inmates. (reload if your going for grants)(50k earned daily achievement.)

you should get 5-6 achievements in one go doing this and it is very stress free. this is not idea for anyone aiming for all achievements. do the same thing only aim for 500 beds (10 sections of 50 cells) and play on the hardest mode if you want the achievement for doing all grants (i dont want it bad enough)

doing this i earned 3 achievements for inmates, 1 achievement for 100+ inmates @ 10% critical, 1 achievement for selling for a million, one for having the top right number reach 50K, one for collapsing a tunnel, and i simultaniously developed a death row area and fried one for another achievement and the achievement for bureaucracy achievement for a total of 9 achievements.
in the end i had 1k inmate deaths and did the begining half of this guide afk and playing a game on the computer while i waited for more inmates in my intake section

see you in Valhalla
