The following Sketchup generated files showcase the basic plans of the buildings from North Market Street and West Orange Street. These two- dimensional images include buildings from 1886, 1926 and 2012. With the help of the Sanborn maps and Google maps, I was able to depict the general outline of the buildings. The buildings are from plate # 28 of the Sanborn maps. Additionally I used Google Maps for the 2012 outline of buildings.

These floor plans showcase a general feeling of how the block has changed over time. The owner of these buildings have changed bringing in new ways of using the buildings space. Adaptive reuse is clearly being adopted to most of the buildings. Some buildings required more space and some less. This can bee seen from the partitions in the floor plans.

The next step would be to create a three- dimensional rendering of the 1886.
