From: BruceThis factory is currently in the process of being torn down (finally). There was an article in todays Boston Globe about it, including a photo showing most of it has already been demolished. I wonder how long until it'll show up in Google. W.R. Grace still owns the property and is responsible for continuing the cleanup process of the contaminated ground water, however the newspaper article also says that Decathlon USA, a division of a French sporting goods company, has chosen the property as the site of a flagship store.
