Turn-of-the-century grandeur returned to the Adam Grant Building through a renovation plan created from the original 1906 and 1926 architectural drawings. These drawings, plus photographs and remnants of the original terra cotta work found beneath the 1960 renovation, guided the recreation of the beaux-arts entry facade, a new bronze entryway, coffered ceilings and Italian marble flooring in the main lobby. Highlighting the exterior renovation was the recreation and reinstallation of four nine foot urns. They were cast in four pieces using fiber glass, then assembled and placed onto reinforced steel poles on the twelfth floor terraces.
