Location Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario
Site number #4196

1 Million sq. ft. factory. Closed in 2008. It employed 1500 workers. When it closed it was known as Kitchener Frame. 2014 - there is much less left to see, but there is still some. ------------ISHOOTTHINGS ADDITION-------------- This is classified as demolished but for all intensive purposes, Schniders Meats is demolished as well. There are 2 mass warehouse type buildings (now that ALMOST ALL equipment has been taken out. There is a basement in both buildings and it wouldnt surprise me if they connect underground and link the buildings as it was once a MUCH MUCH larger complex. On the side of the building closest to Bleams, there is a fluid storage tank on the side of the building. The bottom is flooded with what looks to be hydraulic fluid and has a VERY pungent fragrance to it. The green gnarly water flooding the basement also has a funky smell. Gutted, both buildings. Some interesting but short catwalks. Catwalk to the roof is chained shut. This place appears to be a chemical disaster. Much like many places. It still has 24HR security. Before we entered the property, I had noticed a silver sedan driving on the road that cuts thru. Never made too much of an attempt to be stealth and didnt get bothered by them. TheEasyKayBreezy and I went back later on in the night and I shot the other building and we had a bit of a scare as the security guard drove back to the side I originally saw them come from hours earlier. Seems they go back and fourth. I cant see them driving on the freshly worked land. Not sure if this is being repurposed or if its being demolished. ALARMS CHECKED OFF FOR THE SAKE OF 24HR SECURITY. TheEasyKayBreezy sent me a link from 2019 stating that there will be a medical building put up on this site, but there are also articles on the close of the factory ect..... (link below for future use).
