On Sunday, March 12th, RGA coordinated the relocation of an historic water tank at the future site of the mixed-use development in east Germantown known as Hammer Mill. The tank is believed to be approximately 93 years old and sat at the center of the property.

The property that is being redeveloped was formerly home to the Turner, Day & Woolworth Handle Company that reportedly made wooden handles at the property.

The tank was relocated to an adjacent parcel at the corner of Van Buren and Adams Street next to a two-story brick building that is being renovated to include several new restaurants by Vantage Realty Partners as part of the Hammer Mill redevelopment project. Tribridge Residential and Stockbridge Capital Group are partnered together as the developers of the apartments that will be built on the site by RGA.

“The relocation of the historic water tower was the first step in the construction of the Hammer Mill mixed-use project,” said RGA’s president Craig Johnson. “RGA is pleased to have been selected to be a part of this exciting redevelopment project.”
