The parking was redesigned, providing for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) van-accessible spaces at both the north and south parking areas. Adjacent to the south parking stall is a curved sloped walkway which makes the new H Street entrance of the building accessible. Access to the basement from parking to the north is provided by new accessible walkways.
The existing exterior finishing on the building replicates the art deco and moderne design of the late-1920s era. The building is of unusual construction, consisting of a concrete exterior, with a heavy steel frame and wood roof and floor construction. Exterior paint colors were selected to accentuate the architectural features of the building. The original lighting fixtures on H Street were removed, restored and reinstalled to their original positions. The doors at the main entrance are original and were stripped and restored to a dark patina. New bronze doors, left to patina naturally, were added at both the newly accessible H Street entrance and the basement entrance on 10th Street.
