Patch Question: What Should Replace the Feather Factory?

Sound off in the comments.

The former Mangrove Feather Building, which is also referred to as the "feather factory," has for many years.

Mayor William Hendrick has said a number of times in the past that a local developer is interested in building a hotel on the property, which is located just north of the train tracks.

What do you think should replace the feather factory? A hotel or something else? Tell us in the comments.

You should honestly make a 3 floor paintball field. So many people go paintballing in Suffolk where they have them, and many people would come here if you made it. It would make a lot of money

How about a swimming pool? It would be great to be able to use it in the winter.

Not a good spot for anything!!! The traffic is horrendous in that area now and there is not any parking. I think the radiology building with parking underneath should have gone there or make it a small park with small shops that sell coffee, newspapers, magazines, and food to take with you for all the commuters.

I agree with the Concerned Resident. This would not be a good spot for anything that would need a constant flow of patrons. Due to its past use as a factory, however, it is perfect for a small start up manufacturing facility. In my opinion, a craft brewery would fit perfectly. There is no noise constraint so the proximity to passing trains would not be a problem. Also, "The Feather Factory" is a fantastic name to start making the soon to be world famous "Lynbrew."
