Mural disappears, comes back even better

The block west of Stone Avenue between Congress and Broadway used to have a square structure with murals on three sides. We posted photos in 2012 and 2014. (I've reposted one of those photos farther below.) As part of downtown rebuilding, the murals were taken down. But one has come back, in magnificent style. I knew it was coming, but I didn't know it was done until BG Boyd Photography sent two great photos. The first is an ultra-wide panorama (so edges appear curved):
See how the colors in the new building work with the colors in the original mural? (As always, you can click for a slideshow of larger views.) Next, a closeup of the mural:
The building is called RendezVous Urban Flats. BG Boyd took the photos early on August 17th, 2022.

On May 17, 2012, I posted a photo of the mural under construction in Murals being made, part 8 (Kindness, part 3) along with more info; you can click there to see it all. Here's that photo, complete with buckets of materials and a NO ACCESS sign:
