Adaptive reuse of old Montgomery Advertiser building

8 posts in this topic

Montgomery County is renovating the old Montgomery Advertiser building for use as office space and archive storage. The newspaper moved into a new building near the river in 2002. The county purchased the building after the Advertiser moved and initially planned to tear it down and build a new office building, but decided to renovate the 1930s era structure. The county will spend $12.5 million on renovations and $2.5 million for an integrated parking deck.

Demolition at the site is nearing completion, and renovation should begin in July, with the offices opening in July 2008. County offices that will move into the renovated building include those of the probate judge and revenue commissioner. The project is now expected to cost about $17 million.

The former Montgomery Advertiser building will become Montgomery County Courthouse Annex No. 3, adding 85,000 square feet of county office space. The main entrance will be on Lawrence Street, across from Courthouse Annex No. 1, where the probate judge and county commission offices are now. Those offices will move to the new building, along with revenue, purchasing, finance and the county archives. The archives will be on the basement level, where the Advertiser's printing press once stood. The project also includes a three-level 170-vehicle public parking deck.

The $16 million renovation of the old Montgomery Advertiser building for use as a new county courthouse annex could be complete by November of this year. The county will begin taking bids in February for a $7 million renovation of the current Montgomery County administration building across the street.

Renovation of the building could be done as soon as November, and the parking deck is set to be completed in January 2009.

The building was a Presbyterian church before it was home to the Montgomery Advertiser for 62 years. The church sanctuary, which was later part of the newsroom, will be the new county commission chamber.
