what you already have can meet the general requirements of having own Internet connection at the new office and sharing the connection to the internal users.

however, to make it workable, you need to make sure the connection type is compatible with your existing Internet facing router, e.g. ADSL, Cable, Ethernet or Fiber. any more information please?

You do not need an additional connection, that would be a waste. However, you do need another switch for the new floor, as well as cabling to link to the existing space. If Internet speed is a concern, upgrade the bandwidth of the existing connection and let the whole office benefit.

I do not know if your existing firewall will allow it (not familiar with Checkpoints), but if you replaced with a Sonicwall, you could have 2 subnets defined and have each subnet use one of the internet connections. That would enable both offices to talk and not have to do anything like a point to point VPN between firewalls.

In this scenario, you will require a switch for the new office, along with a cable going from the new floor to the existing.

Their own firewall or their own modem? Both places can have their own modem, and share the same firewall, and things will be perfectly fine. Also, it will accomplish exactly what you're looking for at the best cost.

for the new office they don't want to plug in to firewall.

Bad idea for the an office of a business to lack the protections of a firewall. I bet the new office does not want the expense of a firewall, so they are trying to talk their way out of getting one. But if for some reason a system on the new office's network gets hacked and is used to infect the rest of the company, you will get blamed for lack of proper security controls. So do not allow them to try to get out of being behind the firewall.

How involved is IT management and upper management involved in this issue anyway? Are they all agreeing on the new office having separate internet connectivity when it could just be shared with the existing one?
