From county records map:

BURNELLS BILLIARDS ACCESSORIES 2027 70TH AVE W
DAN SKELLEY PIANO TUNER 2029 70TH AVE W
GREATER SOUND SVC 2025 70TH AVE W
JOHNSON TILE & STONE 2033 70TH AVE W

I assume the "Dan" is the piano tuner, no idea which of the others are Bruce.

Actually, it's 2001 70th Ave West. It's commercial suites, "Narrows Business Plaza".

Bruce Bodine, 48, and his then-employee Dan Antilla painted the face in 1994, shortly after the building was constructed.

Bodine has several friends and relatives who are pilots, and said he thought it would be a fun way to mark the building so they could identify it easily from the air.

“We were just trying to be silly,” he said.

I gotta say, after trekking down here to snap the pics, that it was a considerable anticlimax for what is now an internationally famous building (if only for 15 minutes). There is no higher ground in the area from which to get a shot of the roof, unfortunately.

Set exposure timer ... throw camera as high as you can ... pray you catch camera ... catch camera ... say prayer of thanks that you caught the camera ... view shot ... curse shot ... repeat as needed.

romulusnr, you get an A+ for effort though. You are now an official member of the GGT Photo Safari Team.
