The project scope encompassed a complete demolition and replacement of the existing toilet partitions, floor and wall tiles, vanities, mirrors, lighting and accessories. Plumbing and electrical fixtures were also upgraded. The new design introduced elements that are modern yet rooted in the historical design of The Drake Chicago.
