Jane Castor kicks-off old flour mill demolition in hopes of reconnecting Tampa Neighborhoods

Tampa Mayor Jane Castor kicked off the demolition of the former Ardent Mills Flour Mill on Friday, marking a start of reconnecting Downtown Tampa’s historic neighborhoods.

“This will have a major impact on one of our most important goals for Tampa: bringing the people of our city together,” Castor said in a statement. “For 84 years, this site fragmented our streets and sidewalks, splitting our Downtown in two. By reconnecting these links, we will supercharge the sense of community that we know every neighborhood needs to thrive.”
