New York Engineers upgraded the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, sprinkler, and fire alarm systems, including emergency lighting, smoke exhaust system, and ADA compliance to allow short term stays. Overall occupancy was upgraded from R-2 to R-1. They also designed a new laundry facility on the second floor, supporting 2 washers, 2 dryers, 1 sink, and a floor drain.
