Armour Meat Packing and the Future

Driving around the old National Stockyards, it's shocking to see how much has changed. There are new roads crisscrossing the area, while other roads are now closed. The new Mississippi River Bridge's connector is passing right through the area, forever changing the topography, and probably land prices.
Near Armour, brush had been cleared recently, which is a surprise since no one has maintained anything at the site in years. Will it be meeting the wrecking ball soon, as its owner seeks to sell the property in anticipation for the new bridge?
