The Magnolia Silos Project Progress July 28, 2015 It wasn’t all that long ago that Joanna dropped the kiddos off at school and passed by the iconic and abandoned downtown silos. Although she’d passed by countless times, she was inspired. She imagined what it would be like to bring new life to this old cotton mill, and she saw what it could be. She made the block again and parked out in front, just staring up and considering the possibilities. You guys can probably guess the rest of the story, and the Silos Project, which is by far Chip and Jo’s largest Fixer Upper to-date, is due to open this fall. If you’re a fan of Fixer Upper, this probably isn’t news to you, as some of the purchasing process was aired toward the end of season 2. We, like you, can’t wait to see the finished product, and we are more than “ready to see our Fixer Upper” – so we thought we’d share the Silos progress and some fun places inside the gates. The photo below was taken standing in front of the silos facing the main building. This will be the new home of the Magnolia Market. The photo below was taken from inside the courtyard. This spot will be home to a stage for live music, food trucks, picnic tables and a play area for the kids. The small white building in the middle of the silos and Market is an exciting addition we haven’t announced just yet. We’re still dreaming about what we’ll do with the actual silos. This will be “phase two” of construction. For now, we love that they’re ours and that you can see them from just about anywhere in downtown Waco. This is a close up of the front doors to the Market – where we can’t wait to welcome you in only a few short months! We’ve already started plans for our grand opening event, and it’ll be one you won’t want to miss. We’ll release the grand opening date very soon, so you can make plans to come be apart of it. We hope you feel, as we do, the excitement of what’s to come. We urge you to drive past the Silos on your next trip to Waco and take a look at the construction progress firsthand, and we hope you’ll come and visit when we open this fall. Be sure to hashtag #magnoliamarket and #magnoliasilos on Instagram if you happen to snap a picture while you’re visiting! We’d love to see your photos.
