Matt I love the concept. However in the examples you cite in Monteray and The Distillery District, there is a glaring difference. Those structures are classic examples of masonry construction industrial age buildings. Rheem is essentially a giant steel shed. There is nothing architecturally significant about it. Those optics I think will make it difficult to prevent a demolition .

Maybe a conversation with a guy like Bill Curran to bounce ideas off him or someone like him with that kind of expertise might clarify what is possible. Eyesores aside the area is an amazing piece of real estate with huge transformative potential. Status quo is definitely not acceptable.
