Company plans to redevelop former cereal factory in downtown Battle Creek
A shuttered cereal factory in Battle Creek could be getting new life after officials from the company that purchased it said they want to join the efforts in revitalizing the city’s downtown.
New Mill Capital, a company that specializes in redeveloping closed manufacturing plants, purchased the 450,000 square foot building on South McCamly Street from Treehouse Foods. The plant once produced cereal for the Ralston Purina Company and was last used by Treehouse Foods, which closed the factory in 2018.
Gregory Schain, a principal with New Mill Capital, said the building could be converted into residential property with parking.
“We love Battle Creek, we love the location. There seems to be a lot of economic activity going on, especially in the downtown area,” Schain said.
A tenant that distributes graphic packaging was using the warehouse portion of the building.
New Mill Capital was removing auctioned-off equipment from the building.
Once the equipment was removed, the company planed on presenting architectural renderings to stakeholders.
