This 1903 National Historic Landmark office building had been severely altered over time and was in need of a full renovation. The complete interior and exterior historic restoration and reconstruction of the nine-story structure includes new building systems, elevators and egress stairs. The original cast-iron structural frame was strengthened to allow a new two-story high rooftop addition and infill construction space on each floor, adding 35,000 square feet of prime office space. A new two-story entrance replicates the demolished original lobby, incorporating marble floors, mahogany wall panels and ornamental cast plaster ceiling coffers. The brick and stone exterior fa├žade was fully restored and new copper-roofed, curved glass window bays were added to return the retail shop fronts to their former turn-of-the-century elegance. The project includes the design of tenant fit-outs for the majority of the leased space in the building following renovation.
