The previous owner of the building removed the ceiling, floor covering, and all non-load bearing partitions from the upper five stories of the building.  It is Staff's opinion that the interior of the building with the exception of the portions of the lobby and mezzanine as shown below as the hatched areas be de-designated.

Originally designated in 1980, Staff recommends that the designation be amended to include the newly surveyed four acres that surround the house.
