I got so lathered up over the construction starting that I completely forgot to post pictures of how it looked before we took out the rear platform. So travel back in time with me a couple of weeks. The National Park Service folks wanted us to keep this rear platform and stairs as existing structure. However, the freight elevator was practically destroyed, the platform was not very usable, and the stairs were not safe. To provide indoor parking through the alley for the residence and mini-storage customers, we had to take this stuff out. We did keep as much of the original wood as possible, to repurpose in the buildout.
