Storefronts in each of the three street-level bays are replaced with new frameless glazing. The security room is relocated from the exterior wall into the core of the building in order to create a spacious, uncluttered lobby and to establish a view corridor from the lobby entrance to the inner court. At the courtyard side of the lobby, the fire escape is relocated and the lobby wall replaced with folding frameless glass panels that, when open, allow the lobby space to flow seamlessly into the court garden.
