  •  Interesting Features
    A bridge going up to a parking area on the roof of one building. City streets run between the complex buildings and they are all connected by bridges. Another interesting feature is that rather than use glass windows, many walls were built entirely of glass bricks, which are extremely hard to break, and also provide light to the interior.

     History
    This was one of several tobacco plants owned by RJ Reynolds. Part of it was built in the early 1960's, and part of it in the 1900-1960 era, but I am unable to locate any information about the exact dates. The plant was closed around 2002 as RJR began to lose a large share of the market and began to lay off employees.
     Media Coverage

     Future Plans
    It will probably be torn down or converted to some type of upscale apartments or office space at some point.
