  • $\begingroup$ You may put the origin point at the bottom of the cube (in the same place where your cursor is in the third picture) and then scale. In Edit Mode place the cursor at the bottom of the object and then in Object Mode press Shift+Ctrl+Alt+C--->Origin to 3D Cursor. $\endgroup$

You can choose "Pivot point" for manipulate with objects. Default is "Median Point", which is Origin in your case. You need switch Pivot point to "3D Cursor"
