Between summer 2015 and fall 2016, PDC completed selective demolition of the long-vacant Centennial Mills property, preserving the Flour Mill and enabling a realistic analysis of project options. Coming in under budget, the contractor safely pulled down the most dangerous buildings, removed collapsing wharf structures, salvaged hundreds of thousands of board feet of timber, and saved numerous historical artifacts. The painstaking process, which included extensive clean-up of the Willamette riverbank, earned recognition from both the State Historic Preservation Office and the Department of Environmental Quality. PDC and local stakeholders will work together to identify reuse opportunities for the site, from partial to full site redevelopment.
