I recently got (authorized) access inside this inactive power plant that many of you will recognize. It was built in the 70s and decommissioned in 2011 over environmental concerns. Private developers bought the property a few years ago, and they now have plans to turn the power plant into a hotel. Since the main structure is already very earthquake-resistant, they would rather transform it rather than demolish it completely.
