The former ice factory was completed in 1900 and stopped manufacturing ice 90 years later. Since then it has stood empty but is still owned by Associated British Ports. They say they will consider any credible future options for the building:
The port of Grimsby is a modern and developing operational port. It is currently seeing multi-million pound investment by ABP and its customers which will support significant business development and bring new jobs to the locality. ABP has for a number of years held discussions with heritage and regeneration experts to consider their proposals for the restoration of the Ice Factory. We will continue to discuss with GGIFT any credible opportunity it may bring forward which does not compromise on the future operational needs of a working port.
