My uncle actually owns this building, I will ask my dad what Tom does with it when it's not rented for the Haunted House. I know for a fact that he runs a scrapyard, not sure if he stores scrap there. I also don't think it's the largest place.

Sinclair/Wilsons is.... a dump.
Although it has a fond place in my heart because I used to explore there and take photos before the city started tearing it down. All the buildings there are pretty much demolished, and the ones that were decent had businesses operating in them.
Here are a few photos I took of Wilsons back when I was more adventurous:

I love the idea though Ken, I don't know what I'm going to do this winter without riding I'll probably go crazy. I lost 15 pounds this summer from riding that I had packed on over that long winter. I always wanted to just rent a building to build a half-pipe and skate that during the winter, but with a whole crew like Lamba, we could probably find a place!
