Honestly, the place looks ideal to convert into one of those "getaway from everything" mini resort/spas. Or even turning the place into a spacious home (like those abandoned/retired production/power plant-turned-private-residence). Sell off the unneeded equipment and convert the facility into something more useful. Especially since it doesn't seem to be of any use to any production company for some reason.

The mini-resort/spa would bring back some jobs, whereas the residence would only require seasonal jobs (mostly to maintain the grounds). So it's not entirely a selfish path.

Great TV show idea - Industrial Fix it or Flip it. Rehab or rehash.

Several retired fabs in my hometown. Usually they get put to use but the expense of a fab is in the cutting edge equipment and skilled labor required to bring it up to speed as an integrated system. The buildings themselves are pretty standard industrial shells.

High tech marches on. The cutting edge was once the floppy disc and we have a building here (two actually) built in the shape of the floppy discs. It now holds a library.
