  • Grain elevator to be converted for restaurant / mixed-use

    Mark Ruffin, the owner/developer of the Rocktown climbing gym, has submitted plans to turn an adjacent property into a mixed-use project.

    The historic building was once used as a grain silo but has been vacant for quite some time.

    The plans show primarily office use with the possibility of adding a restaurant, while the entire parking area would be rebuilt and re-landscaped.

    The concept proposed by local architects 3 Level Design aims to embrace the historic industrial architecture of the buildings.

    The exterior concrete and brick would be cleaned and existing steel tubes will be cleaned and repaired and left as a reminder of the former building use.

    Some small additions will be made feature galvanized steel and a rooftop terrace would be added on the lower roof, with a partial awning that would be marketed to restaurants.

    This new project comes as the owners of the directly adjacent Producers Coop are set to sell their large property to a yet to be named buyer.
