Development gets second rendering

Believed to have been built around 1915, the building on the corner of Adams Avenue and Fourth Street for a long time housed Perkins Motor Co.

That look was the inspiration to draft a second rendering for the proposed Market Place Family Foods, the company seeking $500,000 in help from the La Grande Urban Renewal Agency.


“We had some parties that came forward and shared black and white photos from the building’s early days,” said developer Al Adelsberger. “We wanted to try to accommodate for them.”

After Adelsberger and grocer Troy Berglund gave their pitch to the Urban Renewal Agency in March, they drafted a second rendering for the building, one that incorporated trellises and curved windows to mimic the historic building.

Those who supported the historic rendering were inspired by the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, which suggests that historic building storefronts be preserved.

Prior to becoming Blockbuster, the building served as a grocery store, according to La Grande City Planner Mike Boquist.

“The sidewalk that exists along the alley frontage was part of the building’s main entry.  I don’t have any records to confirm this layout, but this information is consistent amongst people I have spoken with,” Boquist said. “Originally, the grocery property also included the Community Bank property, which was improved and utilized as the grocery store parking lot.”
