A project that will close a gap on the north side of Court Square will be considered by the Design Review Board at its meeting Wednesday Court Square project would consolidate Burch Porter By KATHLEEN BURT The Daily News A project that would close a gap on the north side of Court Square will be considered by the Design Review Board at its meeting Wednesday. The four-story building is designed to consolidate the law offices of Burch, Porter and Johnson, which has offices Downtown at 50 N. Front St. and 130 N. Front St. The new building will displace a parking lot located at 124 and 126 N. Front St. but the firm can use parking behind the building to replace the lost lot. "It will not only be a nice addition and its great that Burch Porter has decided to stay Downtown, but from an urban design standpoint it will fill a gap and give a continuous row of buildings on the north side, and a nice framing for the park," said Michael Stevens, Center City Commission vice president of development. In keeping with the character of surrounding buildings, the new structure will have elements of brick and stone, he said. In other business, the DRB will consider projects at 415 S. Front St., 1111 Union Ave. and 195 Madison Ave. The Madison project, an old business item, is the design of a seven-story parking garage for owner Parkway Properties. Tom Turri with Looney Ricks Kiss is the applicant on the project for the parking deck for the William R. Moore Building near the triple-A AutoZone Park. On Union Avenue, Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp. is seeking approval to replace a sign for the BMH Hope and Healing Center. On South Front Street, applicant Chooch Pickard of JMGR Inc. will present a project to renovate an existing one-story structure for mini-storage useFreeman Management Corp. owns the property The meeting begins at 5 p.m. at the Crump Building, 114 N. Main St.
