Industry not dead yet in central cities

August 22nd, 2011 · 33 Comments

As our downtowns turn more and more into places for amusement, tourism, shopping and culture, we have a tendency to think that the whole city has changed. Mnufacturing has vanished to China and all that’s left here are condos, coffee shops, office towers and stadiums.

That’s not quite true, as I got to explore a little in my story here. Lots of industrial operations are sticking to the central city, operations that can’t be stuffed into office space. But the idea of what kind of industrial can survive the demands of inner-city living is changing.
