For many years, the Montgomery Advertiser called the building on the corner of Lawrence and Washington home. In 2002 though, Montgomery County purchased the space, initially planning to tear it down; rather than erase this part of Montgomery’s history, the County opted to renovate the 1930s era building. Today's facade is reminiscent of the building's 1930s roots while maintaining an overall contemporary impression.
With 85,000 SF, the space now houses much of the Montgomery County administration staff including the offices of the Montgomery County Commission, Probate Judge, Revenue, Purchasing and Finance Departments and the County’s archives. Renovations also included a 3-level public parking deck and a three level nine sectioned 3-ply modified bitumen roof membrane system re-roof.
