The project encompasses a complete renovation of the plaza and the plaza level storefront, as well as the addition of new leasable square footage on the 4th and 6th floors of the building.  Also included are soffit lighting and signage, new balconies, structural glass-supported storefront, and signature street-level entrance canopies.
