It looks great for a building reaching 60 years old, but a renovation was due. Are there any renders of the new facade? I hope it'll remain in more or less the same design.

"Galfa Tower is going to reborn" said UnipolSai and Milan City Council. The goal is to restore one of the most important icons of the city's modern architecture.
The restoration project has been developed by Maurice Kanha and BG&K Associated Studio. Construction works began on January 2016. Total investment: 100 million euro.
The tower will host a Melia Group hotel (floors 1-12), residences (floors 13-31). Galfa will also include service areas, conference rooms, restaurant and fitness area.
