The project includes the adaptive re-use of an historic 1880’s office buidling along with the addition of a new 600 foot tall residential building constructed in Architectural Concrete (known by the French term Béton Brut ). The new tower seamlessly merges the interior spaces of the historic structure with that of the new. The program for the new tower includes retail spaces, residential lobby, hotel rooms, amenity facilities, and residences. The foot print of this slender tower is 50 feet by 100 feet.
