Foundry Lofts Construction Progress,
November 1, 2011
The Foundry Lofts building as seen from the Yards Park. The floors on top, which are the two-story penthouse units, were added to the original historic stucture. (Just as a reminder, here's what this building used to look like
, before renovation started.)
A close-up view of the building, at the corner of 3rd and Tingey. Potbelly Sandwich Works will be taking the ground floor space on the corner, and work on that restaurant is expected to begin within the next month or so.
Looking out through the lobby entrance, on the building's northeast corner.
Seating area in the lobby.
Front desk and entrance to elevators.
A cannon found buried on the building site. It was apparently buried vertically, and it's believed it was done that way to allow ships to be tied to it.
The community room, looking out to the courtyard.

One of the hallways, with the open courtyard at left. Of the 170 units, only six are purely interior ones.
The 1-bedroom model.
Another view of the model, taken from the kitchen.
The bedroom in the model, directly behind and above the kitchen. This shows that it is indeed a true loft, with only low walls separating it from the rest of the unit.

So close! So very close! The bridge between the Yards Park and Diamond Teague Park is very close to opening.
