PROJECT SUMMARY / BACKGROUND: The western half of the Regional Office Building was constructed in 1933 as a federal government warehouse for the storage of paper and office supplies, providing an unusually robust frame for an office building. The concrete structure is seven stories high with multiple penthouse structures. The internal structure consists of a square 21-foot column grid with round, bell-capped columns and dropped slab panels supporting floor slabs that are typically 8-9" thick. The warehouse was extended to the east later in 1935, doubling its size and available floor area. Floors 5-7 on the east half of the building were designed for office use and are concrete-covered steel frame with low clearance to the underside of the beams, organized around four light courts that have since been infilled. This portion of the building will require careful coordination to maintain 8-6 ceiling heights. Following its use as a warehouse during World War II, the building was renovated in the late 1950's and converted for use as federal offices. The cast cement facade, designed in the 1930's Art Modern style, was resurfaced with cement stucco and coated with elastomeric paint in 1985. The faade contains a regular pattern of aluminum framed windows that date from circa 2000.
