This is an extensive office remodeling project that will become The Weitz Company’s new home in early 2022.

The first piece of the project includes updates to the core and shell of the building. This includes installing new windows on all four floors, the installation, modification, and extension of new elevators, a complete replacement of the building’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment, new fireproofing, and new restrooms. A rooftop patio will also be an added.

The second piece of the project includes the tenant improvement piece for The Weitz Company. Some feature elements include polished concrete floors, exposed ceilings and raw steel elements to showcase the history of the building. A staircase will be added between levels three and four for ease of movement between the two floors Weitz will occupy.
