The former Miller Manufacturing Company building on Bryan Avenue, just a block off South Main behind the in-restoration Sawyer Grocery Store buildings, will be the next redevelopment project of local developer Eddie Vanston of the Carillon Group. Vanston, who has previously restored the Markeen Apartments, Leuda-May Apartments, and LaSalle Apartments on the Near Southside, and who is currently restoring & converting the Sawyer Grocery buildings on South Main into apartments over retail, will be redeveloping the factory building into 15 industrial-style lofts - seven on the ground floor, eight on the second floor.

The building was built in 1911 and was the site of a major labor strike in the summer of 1922, complete with kidnappings and assaults. The space inside consists of exposed structure, very high ceilings, very large tilt-out windows, and large north-facing skylights.
