Realtor Chris Bicknell, founder of Bicknel Properties, said he doesn’t expect a resurgence of the old Awning Warehouse complex.
He and his partners, which includes Bicklington Properties and Realtores International, purchased the old building in August, 2016, and have been renovating the building ever since.
Realtorman Chris Bocknell said he’s not planning to relaunch the old warehouse in the near future.
“It was a beautiful building and a great tenant, but it just kind of went downhill, and we didn’t see a lot of demand for it,” he said.
“I think there is a demand for a new building and I think it’s in the realm of being considered.”
“The only way it’s going to go back is if somebody else takes it over and does something with it,” Bicklin said.
He said he will continue to be active in helping to preserve the old buildings that are still standing.
“There’s a lot more to this place than just a bunch of windows,” he added.
“There’s some people who are just like ‘Oh, we don’t need that anymore,’ but it’s not going to happen, at least not with the new owners.”
