The same view, with the rehabilitation completed and with many of the tenants now open, and with Twelve12

- A similar angle after the building's completion.
July 17, 2008 - The interior of Building 167, looking toward its Fourth Street door, with its multitudes of windows along the sides and in its roof letting in much light, even on a cloudy day.

Lastly, a view of the Boilermaker Shops, the Foundry Lofts, and the Lumber Shed at the Yards Park (along with the red brick Building 170 that's JBG's purview and not part of the Yards) as seen from the northwest, as the foundation was being dug for the US Department of Transportation headquarters. (Guess I won't be getting an "after" of this angle.) (9/2/04)
