Yeah, I did recognize the apartment building as being close to Stonestown. I am assuming the apartment damage shown is likely one within that building, but it is only a guess as I have never been inside of one myself.

The stores on Market St showing all the broken glass on the sidewalk made me thankful that my Dad's cigar store was an "open-air" one...no windows or doors (just a collapsable gate on a track and a thick canvas "curtain" for locking up at night) and I don't remember any mentions of damage due to the series of quakes and aftershocks.
