Any buyers for the painted-on Black Hawk sculpture?

The building with the 5 story optical illusion mural (artsy folks would call it Trompe l'oeil) of Black Hawk painted on it can be yours for the low, low price of three quarters of a million bucks.

See the Ruhl&Ruhl Commercial listing here. Maybe they'll give me a referral bonus if one of you buys it.

Yeah, that building has been on the market for a while now. If it's sold, bunch of organizations that call it home right now, like the Quad-Citians Affirming Diversity, will be forced to move out, or not.

How full is it right now? It seems like if its mostly occupied that would be a selling point to potential investment buyers.

As far as I know, every single floor is occupied. There are several different organizations, for profit and non-profit in it right now. There are some heating problems; some rooms would get so hot and there would be no way to turn down the heat but to call the building's engineer.
