New entry pavilion and facade renovation

Lobby and retail space

A new sculptural glass pavilion is the key element for the makeover of this 1970’s office tower, which includes the lobby, retail space and the exterior facade. The dynamic and transparent form will provide a dramatic entrance that is intended to transform the perception of the entire building. It will create a highly visible identity and will become a recognizable landmark within the business district. As well as the new pavilion, the project includes stone cladding to the exterior, a new lobby and additional retail space. The new design has dramatically improved leasing and occupancy rates.
