Cullen said:These are so giant, it seems that an industrial use would be the only thing possible. If they made it into a hotel who would want to stay there unless there were windows. This could make a mega brewery to put some big companies out of business. The problem with industrial use is that each industry always likes to have their own buildings.

Rumpy Tuna said:The building is right on the river. Boats used to pull right up to the building to unload grain. Yep the buildings so huge you could do a lot with it.

Rumpy's Deep Water Tap
"Fine Food For Local and Visiting Boaters"
Rumpy Tuna said:Sounds like an idea, the wall on the water goes for the entire lenght of the building so you can tie a lot of boats along it. As for water slides, I don't know how many people want to be swimming in the river, but it would be fun.

There is an apartment complex on Appleton's southeast side (very typical 1980s design) where the developer incorporated a concrete silo from the site's former farm into one of the buildings. The developer created a bedroom on each of two floors inside of the silo, although I do not know how much more/month those two units go for. Very interesting.
