Tenants leased space in the building and used it for light manufacturing, warehousing and auto repair bays. A major fire gutted a large portion of the structure and collapsed the roof in 2017. #AbandonedPlaces #DroneFootage #DJISpark Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsDrone Footage of Green Roof and Structural Waterproofing at Kew Bridge, LondonHuge Abandoned Chicago Power PlantThe Closing Of The Zenith Assembly Plant In Sioux City, IA (1978)Exploring Chicago’s Abandoned Coking PlantMissing Chicago Teen Body Found In Abandoned East Garfield Park Building.Chicago's Abandoned Power Plant | Rooftopping | Urban Exploring
