Help save Remington Arms factory

Help save Remington Arms factory

We found out through Archpaper’s Twitter (@archpaper), they are calling everyone to sign a petition to help save Remington Arms factory in Bridgeport, a Tate-worthy redbrick beauty. The Remington Arms factory in Bridgeport, Connecticut is a spectacular 1.5 million-square-foot structure of 13 interconnected buildings stretching over 76 acres. Now its future is imperiled.

In 1920, General Electric purchased the property, and produced thousands of small kitchen appliances in the plant, but GE slowly pulled manufacturing from the building, and closed it entirely in 2007. The company claims to have looked for development opportunities for the shuttered factory, but concluded that it is “functionally obsolete (and) inappropriate for modern uses.” Now GE plans to demolish the structure, leaving a huge vacant property in Bridgeport—a city that can ill afford more dereliction.

You can find out more here, and sign the petition here.
