The project consists of the improvement of an existing seven-story structure with a full basement. The existing building square footage totals approximately 54,900 square feet which is essentially equally distributed along the height of the structure. The existing structure consist of a concrete frame system. The structure is immediately abutting taller structure on the north-east and south-west. At these locations, the existing structure appears to consist of concrete shear walls in the longitudinal direction and concrete frames in the transverse direction that extend the full height of the existing building.
