Wallace conducted a structural evaluation for the existing historic 12-story, 86,000 square foot historic building, and later provided structural engineering services for its adaptive conversion into a Courtyard Hotel by Marriott. The hotel features 119 guest accommodations, a 120-seat restaurant, a fitness center and other amenities. The lobby and the seventh floor of the hotel have been preserved in the original 1920s environment, while the rest of the hotel has been updated for modern conveniences.
