One Burlington Square

ICV turns an ugly building into an eye stopping one.
See other buildings by ICV in Vermont.  

I was given a wonderful creative job to photograph several of ICV’s  buildings without restrictions.

One is entirely black glass (OBS)

Two are glass and brick (St Paul and College) (I first photographed them with my 4x5 in 1995, taking 2 photos a day!)

Two were old and challenging (Williston Rd, )

One was long long and skinny (Gregory St night)

One was at a 90 degrees angle to its partner. (Main and Battery St)   

And Main St had wide spaces between the building and its corners, giving me unusual peaks at Lake Champlain.

You will also see interiors of Mamava, The Growler Garage, Primmer Piper Eggleston Attorneys at Law, Montrol Backus Oettinger P.C., and The Tech Group

Rob Sprayragen and his team at ICV were a real joy to work with. 


95 Pine Street, Burlington, VT

In 2017, Investors Corporation of Vermont began a major renovation of this downtown Burlington office building. Known for decades as One Burlington Square, the  building was part of a post urban renewal redevelopment project. This building has been completely renovated, from structural elements, a new roof, a state-of-the-art heating and cooling system,  as well as additional climate controlled parking, an added top floor with panoramic views and a modern glass curtain wall exterior.
