25-story vertical expansion to an existing occupied 33-story office building, adding 78,966-m² (850,000 ft²) of new space and bringing the total area to 213,677 m² (2.3 million ft²). MKA’s redesign of the original building’s structural system, developed by another engineer, reduced the amount of required steel by 20 percent.
