Prison --> ??"We have 60,000 square feet of prison facility that we'd like to find a buyer or tenant who will 'repurpose'.  It has 8" thick concrete walls, floor, and ceiling.  It has a generator for backup power.  It is 1 hour from an international airport." - Nick  RE:  Nick, indeed this real estate has some interesting Attributes, Characteristics, andEngineering (A,C,E)  

"Perhaps turn the facilities into a major refrigerated food warehouse!  Given the thickness of the walls and ceiling, one could perhaps use as is (or maybe add glued on styrofoam panels for added insulation) to each of the cells (leaving each open...of course.  An entire area can be refrigerated or - with added equipment - brought down to freezing temps." - Ken Arnold 

"Films studios are always looking for unique properties to refer to other filmmakers to use as film sets. Such TV shows as The Walking Dead had to actually build whole sets that looked like a prison for a whole season.  The site could be rented by the day week month year to film studios and filmmakers." - Christos

"Some old prisons are leased out to haunted house companies during the Halloween season." - Jacob

repurposedGEAR #2.  "Damon, I am w/ our state waste exchange.  Would Repurposed Materials be interested in steel-toed rubber boots from a food processor?  The FDA requirements say that they can only be used for so long.  The boots are in gently used condition, and there are gaylords full of them generated throughout the year.  Various sizes, women’s and men’s, some white, some brown or green colored.  These are generated by a facility that has gone landfill-free." - Julie
