Crane Bay hasn’t always been an event center. In the 1800’s , it was a potbelly stove factory. Then in the 1900’s, GM took over and began manufacturing train engine parts. Just before the Superbowl XLVI, Gary Padgen (former Baltimore and Indianapolis Colt, and NFL Alumni) decided he was going to tranform the vacant warehouse into an edgy event venue. He had quite a challenge on his hands as the building was in need of a major investment before it could be ready for what it was about to become. Would you be able to picture this as an event space?
