Georgetown Steel Plant as a Park?

By

I appraised the Georgetown Steel plant in 2003……..and never got paid for it due to the owner’s bankruptcy shortly thereafter. I read this morning that local officials are now planning for the possibility that the now closed mill will not reopen as a mill. So what does one do with a 584,000 square foot vacant steel mill? It sits on 65 acres in a deep water port and the building has ceiling heights up to 72 feet.

Local officials have presented information on an adaptive reuse of a mill in Germany that now serves as a park. Here is a link to information on the German park:

Would this work in Georgetown? A park? Pleae give me your thoughts on this……

    Um, no. If anyone knows the history of our town, they'd know it would not ever work.
