The project scope was to vertically enlarge the existing six story structure and convert the building into a twelve story, Class A, boutique office building with retail on the ground floor. The square footage will increase from 50,000 to 98,000 square feet. The vertical enlargement started at the existing roof level. The 11th and 12th floors have outdoor terrace space and be freed up for new offices. The existing third floor of the building was removed to allow for the vertical expansion creating an open two story second floor level and storage and factory space on the second, third and fourth floors were freed up for new offices. The ground floor will be converted to retail space.

The interiors of the existing building were being gutted and all existing mechanical systems were replaced. Stairs and elevators were replaced with new stairs and high speed elevators. The existing building lobby was relocated to Charlton Street, the ground floor slab was lowered to accommodate the new location, a new service entrance at the SE corner of the first floor was constructed as well as a new retail entrance at the NE corner of the building. A generator on the rooftop was also installed.

The two new passenger/service elevators installed with ground floor access through the new Charlton Street entrance and will access all floors. Installation of a new hydraulic service elevator to service the ground and basement levels entrance on Varick Street. The façade of the original six story building was cleaned and refurbished.
