Looking for a unique space for your corporate relocation? This basket-shaped Ohio building may be the perfect fit. Ideal for picnic and weaving fans alike, this eccentric structure was originally built in 1997 for the Newark, Ohio-based Longaberger Company, a creator of—you guessed it—high quality handcrafted baskets.
But now the company is financially faltering and looking to offset its giant, basket-shaped asset, on which it owes over $570,000 in back taxes. The seven-story, 180,000 square foot building was custom designed by the company, and the handles alone weigh nearly 150 tons—roughly the same weight as 50 elephants. To avoid ice damage, these humongo handles are heated in the winter.
A tisket, a tasket, a 180,000 square foot basket— if you need a big, bold space in Ohio, this creative design might be the right move for you.
