In 2000, this store underwent another renovation to become the New York showcase for Hermès, the French fashion company, which moved from 57th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues. Within this landmark McKim Mead & White facade, at least 70% of the interior structure was replaced.

A focal point that was a structural challenge is the spiral steel stair hung from the thin cantilevered concrete slabs. The new foundation system consists of steel and concrete mini piles.
