The Magid Arcology Center offices and workshops are now in operation at the old Starkev Air field in Weatherford. With the permission of the City Council, the MAC uses derelict land that has become an eyesore and an “attractive nuisance”. A clean-up and remediation project is planned and MAC will receive funding for the initial work.
The MAC facility uses three (insulated) 20′ ISO containers – which have been converted into commercial, agricultural and light-industrial use. Like most ISO Containers, these examples were designed for a single journey – and MAC rescued them from the scrap heap. The containers have simply been cleaned, painted and connected to City utilities.
Land is being cleared for an Urban Farm and planting will commence in the Spring.
