The company that bought London’s landmark Kellogg cereal factory will unveil its plans to redevelop the vacant site on Wednesday.

Tillsonburg-based E&E McLaughlin Ltd. is holding a press conference at the east London plant at 10 a.m.

The company has already submitted a concept plan to city hall to redevelop a sprawling commercial and industrial complex on the nine-hectare site, with 93,000 sq. ft. of space.

The uses could include office, light industrial, residential, recreational warehousing and restaurants.

One possibility would be a rock-climbing wall attraction made possible by a multi-storey space at the rear of the property.

The company’s application to rezone the site is expected to go to city council’s planning committee in three to five months.

The Kellogg plant opened in London in 1913 and closed in December 2014, eliminating more than 500 unionized jobs. The Michigan-based cereal giant moved most of the jobs to the United States.
