It has been said that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, but we think the sum of the parts being used in our renovation makes a great story in and of itself. Here’s a look at the project by the scale of its components:
• 1,800 tons (3,600,000 lbs) of structure steel
• 850,000 lbs of concrete
• 8,750 wood timbers
• 320 insulated glass panes
• 130 ﬁxed shades
• 150 operable exterior shades
• 176 operable interior shades
• 1,800 louvers
