The original building’s main floor has vaulted ceilings, large windows, brick walls, a flat roof, and wooden cross beams. The mezzanine consists of three rooms. The second floor has large arched windows and vaulted ceilings.The arched windows are one of the best architectural features.

The interior of the Ballet Studio was constructed in a Portland warehouse.The stunt rigging crew installed 4 wenches. Rigging and wires were used for several of the cast and stunt people for the dramatic fight scene.

Following purchase in 2008, renovations began to convert the building into a contemporary arts center.  More than 600 people attended Yale Buildings first public exhibit in May 2011. It is located at 800 SE 10th avenue, Portland, Oregon.
