The existing building was an old Beaux-Arts brick building dating from the World War II era. Following a major site planning effort we redesigned the single front elevation. The existing façade was an ugly sheet metal oversized structure that covered the end of the building, when trains no longer entered the building. We recreated the Beaux-Arts brick detailing and aesthetics from the opposite end of the building. This intent was to bring the building back into its own history, but with a fresh interpretation. Due to cost considerations this recreation was done in cement plaster. We designed new foundations and structure for the new wall and then detailed it.
