A fountain is also a possibility for the courtyard area; new fire lane along the north side of the structure; create a new pedestrian walkway at the north side of the building, near the east end of the building and replace the existing masonry wall near an open pit in the same general area; and develop an elevated plaza level with stairway access, ramps and structural beds.
