Building Move: The Candy Factory
On September 22, 2003 the Showley Bros. Candy building was moved to make room for the new baseball park in San Diego. Moving the Candy Factory was an ambitious undertaking. The 100 foot by 100 foot, un-reinforced brick building, weighing 3 million pounds, was moved one block east of its present site, requiring over 42 hydraulic dollies and an intricate cable winch system.
