Old bathroom fixtures factory in Hespeler. Portions of it were built in 1847. American Standard purchased it in 1969.

This was one of the main money-makers in Hespeler and helped lift the little town onto its feet.
The factory closed in 2007. Ever since then the building has sat empty.

After many trips back, I finally found a way in. Turns out part of the building is being used by the Drayton Theatre company as a storage house for all their props & sets.

The building is now under video surveillance as well as a part time guard for nights. I have never run into anyone but I have friends who went at night and couldn't access the building. All POE's are locked up tight.

The building is being converted into Lofts.

It looks like it was vacant a lot earlier than 2007. I wonder what the hold up is on the condos. That view would be great. Good find back in the day Skye.

there is a lot of work going on at the site. Renovations are well under way.

No they aren't taking it down...after all this time of getting approval and whatnot? They are probably trashing some of the non 'lofty' parts lol.

I've heard the owner was at Cambridge City Council about a week ago getting final approvals, and he is close to getting ready to do some serious construction. I think he's a developer from Waterloo that has done some conversions there.

Soon to be lofts...or at least, that's how the story goes. Sale center is open. Questions as to the soil contaminants etc. and the proximity to a flood plain probably remain.
