Continuing my look back at 2004 photographs from the Property Information Verification System, take a look at 1230, 1232 and 1234 Ninth Street just seven years ago, at which time all visible buildings were apparently vacant:
Now, Wagtime occupies the center building, 1232 Ninth. Wagtime completed a significant and gorgeous renovation in 2009. Long View Gallery occupies most of the the building seen on the right, 1234 Ninth. Long View relocated to this former auto showroom after completing a significant build out and renovation in 2009. An Italian restaurant will occupy the building seen on the left, 1230 Ninth. The restaurant is in the middle of renovations and has ABRA placards posted.
Pretty great contrasts, right?
