This 40 million dollar renovation restored many of the existing historic spaces to their original grandeur and repurposed the remainder of the building to suit current needs.  The lighting renovation goals were to bring the existing lighting up to current standards in a historically sensitive way, to add new lighting to enhance the overall visual experience, and to project a unique urban identity.  This work was accomplished by the reconfiguration of both interior and exterior lighting, which resulted in existing spaces and features that were transformed in ways never seen before.
