September 2009: External inspection suggests that the building is vacant. There are no obvious signs of ongoing maintenance.
March 2012: External inspection finds no significant change since the last site visit. The building falls within the site of the proposed Irvine Harbour development. It is unclear whether the structure is proposed for retention within the masterplan.
15 October 2014: External inspection finds basic maintenance appears to be being undertaken. Pigeons appear to be using the building as a roost. A tree to the rear is growing fast and beginning to encroach the property.
