A closer view of the south side of the building, in August 2005. (5/08)
A different angle of the same side of the building, with the renovating completed, and showing the penthouse units on top. (2/26/12)
The interior of the then-soon-to-open Potbelly Sandwich Works on the northwest corner of the building, seen via peeking through a smudgy window. (2/26/12)
The southwest corner of the building, where Kruba Thai and Sushi opened on Nov. 9, 2012. A new awning has been installed over the sidewalk, in preparation for outdoor restaurant seating. (11/9/12)
Looking at Evo Furniture Gallery, which opened in summer 2013. At far left is the outdoor seating for Kruba. (11/11/13)

, with construction nearing completion.
The Foundry Lofts building, as seen in a wide-angle-lens shot from Third and Tingey in December 2006. (See, I told you it was Building 160.) (12/06)
