Jenbar how long has been since you worked there?
In that particular building... well, I was pregnant with my first who will be 8 this summer! I have been a stay at home mom forever....

But, we left the area in Oct 2006... so I am familiar with any and all changes till then.

You probably had pretty much unobstructed views when you were there
Yeah, the conference room was amazing.

In that building, I worked for Comsys. I also worked at Entex - which became Seimens. I wasn't into the Volt model of "churn and burn".

Volt moved their offices to your old building a few years ago. The view was absolutely stunning. Even better than my view in downtown Seattle 30 floors up, facing Mt. Rainier.

You definitely know your city Toughguy. The Bellevue picture is from September 2007. Some of the other pictures like the U District, the freeway interchange, and the McMansions were taken this winter. You can tell because the trees are brown.

The construction crane is definitely the symbol of downtown Bellevue these days. In the center-right of the picture, you can see the Bellevue Towers in a relatively early stage of construction. They're still incomplete but much taller now...
