The Belding Corticelli abandoned plant

No more abandoned...

Coaticook (Quebec), Canada

It is in 2004 that the old factory Belding Corticelli has been shut down. Since then, it has been abandoned and floors has been waved at the mercy of weather that infiltrate by the roof and windows. Long time ago, there has been manufactured elastic and laces here. The building has been sold in September 2012 to developers who want to transform the plant into a complex of 38 rooms. They also talk about reception rooms, an art gallery, creation spaces for artisans and a restaurant.

The work must begin in spring 2013 and must be completed a year later. And it's a huge projet, I can confirm. While the ground floor was partially burned, the upper floors  shows their eight years of neglect: the leaky roof, fungi that grow here and there, the waves in the floors and the mountains of snow inside. In short, the list is long.

However, at the back of the factory there is a place that will make a beautiful terrace, right next to the Coaticook Gorge and the old dam.
