In August 1956, George Scott constructed an egg production factory and chicken coup on the north side of Dundas Street between Scott Street and the Scott Pond. It consisted of two, five-storey buildings covered with aluminum. It was considered the largest egg production plant in Ontario.

On 2 September 1962, the north building collapsed. Not long after the accident was the rest of the building demolished.
