Google's mystery barge is being dismantled and service as a potential invite-only showroom is no longer on the cards, according to reports.
The Portland Press Herald reports that after being towed into Portland Harbor last October, the barge, which was supposed to be used as a showroom - has now journeyed to Turner's Island Cargo Terminal in South Portland, where parts will be dismantled.
The barge contains shipping containers arranged to create a four-storey building.
The owner of the Turner's Island Cargo Terminal, Roger Hale, said the floating building has now been purchased by an anonymous "international barging company" and is currently being prepared to float on to a new, undisclosed location.
It remains unclear why the project was scrapped.
