Built as a massive horse stable, this downtown Seattle building has been renovated into office spaces

Cornerspotter is the Curbed Seattle feature in which we show you a historical photo taken somewhere in the city and you identify the location. Impress fellow Curbed readers with your knowledge by leaving guesses in the comments or send them to our tipline: seattle@curbed.com. We'll post the answer on Friday. And hey: no cheating!

renovation-week While the Alaskan Way Viaduct there is going through a renovation of sorts (or at least the ground underneath it is), we're more concerned with the building over there on left with four arches built into the brick front. This downtown structure was built in 1910 as livery stables for horses. The four-story building once accommodated as many as 300 horses at a time. Nowadays it accommodates office workers, including the architects and general contractors who helped renovate it.

Any ideas what this building is and where it's located?
