So, Smurfit/Stone mothballed their operations in 2006, but definitely retained ownership of the property. The business records for Paperworks begins in 2008, so it was empty for at least a year and a half to two years at that time. There's no record of sale, so they most likely leased the property. Paperworks ended operations in late 2017, laying off 147 workers. My fault for only checking sales and ownership records and not including leasing/rental.

For those that have been wanting to visit this location you might want to get a move-on. Plans to renovate the property started in 2018 and if the plant just sold they may be getting ready to get started. A Dallas real-estate company had proposed plans to turn the space into a residential/commercial hub with apartments, office spaces, hotels and shops.


Wonder if the recent flooding might alter/delay those plans.

You'll be fine. It was badly flooded from the hurricane a month or two ago. I went again after this set, after the hurricane. The power was knocked out and there was about two inches of mud throughout the place. Everything was structurally sound though. It was quite and adventure trudging through the place like that. I finally explored the rest of the buildings on that third trip, I'll get around to posting it. Have fun!

Thank you for sharing something from my City. My ancestors were in the paper business nearby - 300 years ago!
