Murray Bonitt of Bonitt Builders announced plans to transform and preserve the waterfront warehouse at 10 Duke St. into a market, tavern and event space according to a news release. Bonitt will partner with Rex’s Management CEO Noe Landini on the new concept. According to the release, the new venture will be called Copper Mill, “a nod to the former mill on the site which fabricated barrels for the Alexandria Flour Company. The site is located where the Robinson Landing development is today. The warehouse was also formerly used as a mess house and commissary by the Union Army during the Civil War. The current plans for the two-story 6,400 square-foot warehouse build- ing will consist of a small upscale market at the rear of the building, with a casual tavern on the first floor, and a 3,200 private event space upstairs.”
