Former Pillsbury plant closer to demolition

Fehr Graham is helping Moving Pillsbury Forward regenerate one of the largest brownfield sites in central Illinois.

The Pillsbury plant in northeast Springfield closed 21 years ago but left behind 20 buildings on 18 acres that are a hazard for the 12,000 people who live within a mile. 

Ridding this blight will stabilize the community. Over the next three to five years, Fehr Graham be there every step of the way as this land is revitalized. 

In this interview with Illinois Times, Fehr Graham Principal Joel Zirkle explains the process.
