It would be a more fitting match with America's general decline for the Ford plant to be completely demolished and for the 320 acres to be replanted with native forest species.

Because the concept of embodied energy escapes you? You would rather have that huge plant demolished and rotting away in a landfill, causing all forms of offgasing then utilize the building? I dont know where you are from, but we happen to like our historic/existing buildings. Repurposing them for productivity--especially green biz productivity--will be what gets America back on her feet. Seek decline where you live, please. We dont want it here.
