I spot this security guy in the distance practically running in my direction.

I’m not actually trespassing at this point, so I don’t stress it. Maybe I’ll just come back and do this some other time…

Then he stops and turns and hustles back the other way.

He does this a few times, and I just keep taking photos of nearby things, discreetly watching.

I can’t quite figure out what his deal is, but whatever it is – it’s clear he’s not watching this construction site at all.

With many access and exit points, it’s hard to not take a look.

Located at the corner of Borden and Review avenues, this new building will eventually be a self storage facility. It takes the place of a single story warehouse that formerly was served by a railroad track out back (my favorite). This building was used by the Owens-Illinois glass corporations’ paper products division – likely for the delivery of packaging products transported to LIC by rail. (Owens still exists today). Just to the west was the former location of Seaporcel Metals (now a FedEx parking lot), and to the north, National Envelope.
