The top-to-bottom overhaul of this landmark, built in 1947 includes new double-height glazing and upgraded entry. A reconfigured lobby required the transfer of four existing building columns. The elevators, electric and HVAC systems have all been updated and a new irrigation system will collect rainwater for the new roof terraces.
The 33 story building is designed to attain LEED Gold certification.
