The plans call for work on all floors of the 87-foot-tall, seven-story building and were filed with the New York City Department of Buildings under job number M00535516.

The project is described in the filing as: perform all work required by the contract documents for the alteration and renovation of the designated premises, including all labor, materials, equipment, scaffolding and other facilities and services necessary for the proper and complete execution.
