Capewell Horse Nail Co. (Update)


A year ago I showed the severely deteriorated Capewell Horse Nail Co. and explained that a proposal
to renovate the building into apartments was struggling to find financing.
Work to remediate the serious environmental damage is underway.  


Recently there was a report that the project has finally obtained financial commitments.
If this eyesore is turned into quality housing, that will be an impressive accomplishment.

Please. Please. Don't leave me hanging. Horse Nail Co.? I can guess but maybe some more info?

Kate said...

At what cost? Birdman's question is mine…what did the former company produce?

Jack said...

Horse nails. How do you think horseshoes stay on?

As I've heard said before, this building has good bones! I hope it gets a new life.

Sylvia K said...

I do hope the building is saved and renovated!!

RedPat said...

Here's keeping my fingers crossed that it gets restored, Jack!

There's a building here I've featured before that every once in awhile has an update in the news like this- and one still wonders: is it actually going to lead to anything?

It looks in a fragile state but maybe its bones are worth saving. I like the angle you've got on that first shot.

Love that first shot! Very artsy. Let's hope the reno comes about!

Randy said...

Love the composition of the first shot.

What? No demand for horse nails in Connecticut these days?
It looks as though this may be the kind of renovation job that was required for Uther Pendragon's battle axe - just needs a new head and a new handle and it'll be good as new.

Here's hoping to see the restoration sometime soon then Jack!
