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
