Burton Plaza gets a new owner and new name

STERLING – Attorney Jim Mertes is the new owner of building that houses his law office.

Mertes bought Burton Plaza, 4015 E. Lincolnway, from Eric Blaszczak in February and renamed it the Mertes Center.

Blaszczak bought the building in 2005 from Sterling businessman Don Burton.

Mertes has been making improvements since day one, replacing the roof, landscaping, repairing the heating and cooling system and replacing the exterior lighting.

Renovations also will make space for two to six more businesses, in addition to the eight already there, which include Seno Formal Wear, Onsite Photography and Destinations Travel Services.
