Construction Watch: Silo City

The first phase of the Silo City project is back on track after a change in general contractors.  Developers Anthony Ceroy and Marvin Wilmoth of Miami-based Generation Development Group are spearheading the effort.

The American Mill & Warehouse building is being repurposed for residential and commercial use. Generation Development purchased this portion of the site for $2.8 million in 2020. Built in 1906, the more than century old American Warehouse once functioned as both a storage facility and research and development operation for the American Malting Company. The complex is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

This first phase includes 168 residential apartments.  Studio to four-bedroom plans will range from 405 to 1,910 sq. ft. of living space. Carmina Wood Design prepared the reuse plans.

Common area amenities planned for the building include a wellness/fitness center, resident lounges and gathering spaces, conference rooms, a co-working space, 13,000 sq.ft. of office space, an event space, and arts and exhibit areas. The building will also have several exterior patio and outdoor spaces, with ornamental lighting, niche gardens, public access pathways, and biofiltration features built into the site’s landscape.

Long-term plans call for at least two more phases.  Next up is reuse of the Perot Malt House which would include approximately 92 residential units and commercial space. Work on the first phase of the project is now projected for fall 2023.
