Plus, it's one of the few remaining buildings in the District that are still empty.

That would be a great building for a club. I wonder if it is empty because of toxic waste issues. I imagine they used some nasty chemicals in Aluminum foundries in the past.

Do you know anything about this building? I moved to the Twin Cities in 1987, it has always been empty.
