Join us for a tour of the 424 Building!

The 424/Phillips Murrah building is a multi-use commercial building under construction in the heart of Midtown. Retail, service, and hospitality are the focus of the street-level spaces to continue the growth of the walkable pedestrian experience of the area. The upper four floors are focused on business office use. Sensitive to the context of its neighborhood, masonry materials were used at the lower levels to complement the lower-scale masonry buildings of Midtown, while providing consistent smaller-scale colonnades to heighten the pedestrian experience. The top three floors that are to become the offices of Phillips Murrah step forward and are set apart from the context, reflecting the progressive and innovative culture of the firm.

Along the front of the building, the first two floors stretch out wide and pull away gradually from the street, making way for a northern patio that turns the corner toward a deep eastern plaza serving as both patio and pedestrian connection deeper into the site. This plaza is to eventually become a breezeway between anticipated future development. Presenting themselves as a singular form (with a single tenant), the upper three floors face the street more directly, perching atop and reaching out from the base below, and balancing an otherwise simple composition with just a few subtle moves.

Every design challenge provides a unique opportunity to improve our built environment. Both new infill construction and renovation/reuse can be equally challenging and equally fulfilling. The 424 project aspires to enhance the vibrancy of Midtown, acting as a catalyst for further thoughtful development in the area.
