A New York developer wants to breathe new life into a historic industrial park off Statesville Avenue north of uptown. Camp North End would be a creative hub, with offices, apartments, shops and restaurants, as well as space for light industrial and educational uses.

As old factory sites go, the Hercules Industrial Park between Statesville Avenue and Graham Streets just north of uptown is full of fascinating stories.

“This site has this really amazing history of innovation. When Henry Ford was here that looked like pioneering the assembly line,” said Varian Shrum, community manager for ATCO, which bought the 75-acre site last December for about $17 million.
