Four-storey skating rink

Montréal (Quebec), Canada

It can not be said that the place is in a good shape. The water infiltrates through every small hole in the roof to the point of offering on this cold winter night a skating rink on each floor. Moreover, the ice must make more than eight centimeters thick.

On the first floor, the walls bear the traces of a fire that seems to have broken out in the old part of the factory. Outside light permeates through the holes in the sheet metal and rare graffiti adorn its walls. With a value of more than $ 8 million, it is guessed that the inspector's last visit dates back several years.

The company, which was in bankruptcy in 2012, seems to have abandoned it for quite some time. The machinery was extirpated from the building, probably sold to pay off the debts of this old vegetable oil plant.

Today, the legal owner is a real estate business founded one year before the previous owner's bankruptcy and whose name is the civic address of the place. This "new" company is itself owned by three other companies specializing in holding companies and mutual funds.

One can therefore guess that its current owners must be fortunate enough to wait for the right moment to resell their building with the benefit they deem appropriate. Until then, it will not be today that the roof will ceases to flow.
