Tempe's Hayden Flour Mill restoration taking another step forward

[Source: Jan Buchholz, Phoenix Business Journal] -- Restoration and remodeling of the historic Hayden Flour Mill in Tempe into a modern mixed-use project will move another step forward Tuesday when the developer submits final plans to the city at an on-site ceremony. Details of the plans by Tempe-based Avenue Communities will be unveiled at a press conference Tuesday morning at the mill on the southeast corner of Mill Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway, according to Chris Baxter, Tempe community development and marketing specialist. Phase I, which will take place this summer, includes cleaning and refurbishing the mill in preparation for reconstruction and new construction. The mill was opened in 1874 and operated until the late 1990s.
