Well after several delays they finally had the auction of The Chung Property. A Forestville based developer bought it. He plans to clean up the contaminents and go from there. No plans have been made as of yet.

2013 upadate:

The notorious Chung Property remains sitting there. A 9 Acre Eyesore across from The Plainvile Commons. Mr. Senese (the Forestville developee who bought the property) was supposed to get a $300,000 loan for the environmental clean up only from the town of Plainville a couple weeks ago until someone stuck there nose where it didn't belong and determined that the loan is illegal.  Angry Now most in town believe this eyesore is going to remain for another 20 years.   Angry  It didn't happen, but it's too bad this weekend's blizzard didn't take care of that property.

Still sitting there along with Senese's other property on Queen Street in Southington across from Shoprite next to 7-Eleven.

Finally starting to come down. Some demolition work has finally begun at the notorious Chung Property in Plainville. The old Chung's Buffet building (which was Lum's and later Muir's) is gone and some other parts of the property have been demolition. Stay tuned.

Sounds like the infamous International Foods Marketplace Buffet in Allen Park, Michigan. It operated for only two years in the early 1980's in a building that resembled a McDonald's restaurant from that vintage on Allen Road next to Thunderbowl Lanes. The building was never retenanted after IFMB closed-that's nearly 30 years! During that time, the building had deteriorated and parts of the parking lot had an out-of-control weed invasion. Finally torn down this year. I'm not even sure if anything's supposed to go in there, however.

Those familiar with this property will now noticed that the red haunted house that was home to The Book Exchange has just been ripped down. I remember the creaky stairs. At one time this was a private residence. The house was notorious. I can't find the articles online right now, but I believe it was in the 1940s when 2 guys who escaped from prison, dressed up as women showed up at this house, asked to spend the night and murdered the women who lived in this house.
