Camp North End is one of the largest adaptive reuse projects in the country. The 75-acre, historic industrial site was used in the past as a Model T factory and a U.S. Army Quartermaster Depot. There’s an old boiler room and a water tower that’s starting to become an iconic landmark.
Today Camp North End is being repurposed, while maintaining its historic structures. There are art studios, co-working spaces, and small businesses. The site is host to a growing number of events, including markets and Friday Night at Camp North End, which includes live music, art, food trucks and more.
