One of the largest and most historic buildings in The Vista — the Adluh Flour warehouse — is up for rent, with plans to covert it into stores, restaurants, bars or offices.
The 18,100-square-foot building has been empty for about a decade, since the Allen Brother Milling Co., as the firm is officially known, shut down its retail business and the space was no longer needed for packaging and storage.
The milling operation in the distinctive white silo for wholesale customers will continue, said Beth Ellis, the company’s controller and a member of the Edgerton/Allen family, who has owned the firm since J.B Allen Sr. founded it in 1926.
“We’ve talked about (leasing the warehouse) over the years and just decided to take the option,” she said. “It was just under-utilized.”
