During a tour this week in anticipation of Harsch Development Properties' Oct. 29 presentation before the Portland Development Commission on a $115 million development proposal, the Business Journal got a glimpse of the condition that Centennial Mills is in.
Built in stages between 1910 and 1940, the 12-structure complex is part ghost town, littered with abandoned flour mill equipment and such funky innovations as a "manlift" that once transported workers between floors. It's also part danger zone, where dead rodents and birds decay while the roof caves in and mossy patches grow like lawns.
