Lights Go On in the Mandel

This morning on the way into work I saw a sight that's been a long time coming: the lights were on in the retail space of the Mandel Lofts building at 7th & Olive. I've often thought that despite constant work, I wouldn't believe the building was getting close until I saw some sign the building's utilities were actually functional.

Though it was way back in November when the scaffolding got removed, it took until today for the lights to come on (or at least for them to come on at a time when I was walking by).

You may also remember that it was last October that a posting went up for a 7-Eleven in the building's corner space. That posting only lasted a day or so, far less than the legal requirement. The license application is still listed as pending.
