Designed by John Andrews, it is considered a heroic marvel of concrete-modernism. Upon completion of the project it will be a leading example of sustainable performance for significant modern buildings of this type and scale.

Across multiple phases, the project will replace the complex curtainwall and special window assemblies to meet advanced energy codes and conserve original design elements. BIM-based models for carbon emissions, energy consumption, and lighting guide the design for heightened storm resistance.
