Large format white porcelain tiles and new broadloom carpet takes place of the previous brown brick floor pavers of the 70s. The color palette was updated to make for a more modern feel while keeping with corporate design trends. Near the entrance at Capitol Avenue sits a new modernized guard’s desk that faces an enlarged TV enclosure wall anchoring a seating group of contemporary lounge furniture. Down from the entrance sits the focal feature of the renovation – a new modern stair trimmed in stainless steel and glass. The same white tile continues down the stair, over a new platform with recessed planter bed and onto the first floor. New furniture adds life to the first floor lobby that was previously an empty space. Tenants and visitors can sit and work, charge their devices, or relax and eat lunch. A wall of enlarged historic downtown Little Rock photographs adds interest for the passers by, and some even tell the story of the history on the building's site.
