Encompassing an entire city block, numerous uses are incorporated into the historic shell without compromising the existing architecture. The creation of a new court, addition of penthouses along a rooftop promenade and new, restrained architectural details all subtly defer and refer to the original.

This project was cited with a Municipal Art Society Preservation Award.
