Burnham Square Columbus, Ohio
2008 Ohio Chapter ASLA Merit Award
An elegant and active mixed-use neighborhood in the middle of the city.
One hundred condominiums wrap around a grand, linear urban courtyard and underground parking to create Burnham Square, an exciting urban neighborhood adjacent to the Arena District.
Tightly woven into the fabric of the city, the courtyard provides an oasis within this active mixed-use district of residential, office, and retail uses.
The courtyard and urban piazza shape a green roof that covers a corridor between two underground parking facilities. In addition, the site design hides an above-grade parking structure which is fully screened by the western building. Materials include reclaimed clay brick pavers for streets and plazas and an elegant English Oak tree alley.
