Now much left of the original look of the old building, but based on the address and the window door configuration, and if you look through the bay door, you can see the window configuration on the side of the building, I would definitely say this is the same building.

Your probably right, that's a tough one.

Looks like the only change to the building itself (the islands are gone of course) is the roof and they took the paint of the brick! Cool find.

With the amount of times I have passed that place, I can't say I ever imagined that property to have looked THAT beautiful. Plastic and brick like that gives me the shivers, it's downright hideous! Awesome find.

I'd say that's the place 100%. Address matches. Man hard to believe what some older places looked like vs. what they look like now. Nothing about that place makes me want to ever stop there.
