Before the industrial complex’s abandonment in the early 2000s, it operated for a few decades. The Plastic Molding Corporation made injection moldings in the warehouse portion of the building. The office wing of the building was a maze of rooms and expensive furniture. The building sat for over 15 years. The paint flaked, the roof leaked and the rooms molded over. For the locals, the building served as a dump, a place to loot and a place to meet over the years. After 16 years of vacancy, the building was bought and will be renovated by 2020.
