Liberty Utilities still looking to sell Concord gasholder building

The future of the Concord gasholder building is still up in the air despite its listing this week on the National Register of Historic Places.

The new listing makes the building eligible for certain grants and tax breaks, but does not offer legal protection: Privately owned buildings on the register can still be torn down and replaced.

…Gasholder buildings existing in most American cities before natural gas become popular and while many still exist, Concord’s may be the only one  in the country that still holds the huge machinery that was used to contain the gas. This is why it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Liberty has said that it could cost $500,000 to stabilize the building, which has suffered some damage over the years, and perhaps a million dollars to make it usable.
