Phase 2 projects include a full elevator modernization of all elevators on site, full renovation of their exterior plaza, full façade restoration on all three buildings and a refresh of the interior corridors of the 1st floor of all three buildings. The elevator modernization scope includes all new finishes, new jack assembly, and new wiring and electronics for the four passenger elevators.

The façade restoration was brought upon due to the failure of the existing façade system which as cracks and penetrations that allow water to get into the building – the new façade restoration will include providing all new facade systems at all three buildings. The final project of Phase 2 includes renovation to the interior corridors with new paint, architectural finishes, and light fixtures to refresh the existing conditions.
