Leavenworth Fruit Warehouse's Days Are Numbered

August 15, 2012


The wrecking

ball is coming.

Leavenworth City Councilmembers voted last night to approve the demolition

estimate from Pipkin Construction to take down the old Leavenworth Fruit Warehouse along Highway 2. The

timeline for demolition estimates the building will likely come down in early November.

The future

of the fruit warehouse building, iconic to some, an eyesore to many others, has been a point of discussion for

decades. Leavenworth Mayor Cheri Farivar said the majority of the land will be used for parking, with owner

Brian Nelson keeping some of the land for development.

KOHO’s Clint Strand

chatted with Farivar and City Administrator Joel Walinski about the warehouse and other issues during the KOHO

Morning Show.
