Burns White Center at Riverfront East
Riverfront East is home to the corporate headquarters of Burns White LLC, a full-service law firm that provides corporate, litigation and consulting counsel to clients operating across a broad spectrum of industries nationwide. Harnessing the collective skill of more than 100 attorneys, the law firm operates offices in Cherry Hill, N.J., Cleveland, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Princeton, N.J., Wheeling, W.V., Wilkes-Barre, Pa. and Wilmington, Del.
A Euro Plaza, or woonerf, connects the Burns White Corporate Headquarters to the planned Riverfront West office building. A woonerf (Dutch for living street) is a concept created in the Netherlands and designed primarily with the interests of pedestrians and cyclists in mind and as a social space where people can meet safely. This Complete Streets technique includes shared outdoor space, traffic calming, and low speed limits with priority given to all modes of transportation including automobiles, bicycles, and pedestrians. Motorized traffic in a woonerf is restricted to walking pace. The Euro Plaza will be built at the same grade as the sidewalk, without curbs. Through traffic is directed using a series of lighted bollards.
Visitors and employees at Riverfront East will enjoy great City and River views and access to the Riverfront Trail system. Construction is currently underway with completion anticipated for Spring 2017.
