From 1915 to 2010

The building is almost 100 years old.  Glass on three sides, steel trusses.  Used until 1979 as part of the American Can Company, this building has stood idle for 30 years.  Vertical Solutions, from Salt Lake City, took this shell and inserted a world-class indoor climbing and fitness gym.

the facts

It's huge! Think of a covered football field.  Built in 1915 for the American Can Company, the site was an active factory until 1979, when the plant was closed.  The site was abandoned and neglected for many years.  Now it is part of a multi-building redevelopment project that includes the headquarters of Amer Sports - the parent company for Salomon, Wilson, Atomic, Precor, and Arcteryx.
