Main entrance to the Richman Bros. plant on E. 55th

Richman Bros. was acquired by the F.W. Woolworth Co. in 1969, and Woolworth's closed this plant in 1990. It has been vacant ever since. In 2009, a Chinese investor, Derek Ng, bought the building and announced plans to convert it to condos, studios, and the American headquarters for Chinese companies coming to Cleveland, but nothing has come of these plans; the building's enormous size might well deter its redevelopment.
