NAI Ruhl Commercial: Sale of former Pro Build Lumber store in Silvis Sold to Old Capital Retail, LLC, which has been vacant for several years


SILVIS, IL – December 2016 - John J. Corelis of NAI Ruhl Commercial Company is pleased to announce the sale of 1301 First Avenue Silvis, Illinois, the former Silvis Cashway Lumber and later Pro Build Contractor Supply. The future use of the property is undisclosed at this time but the property will be remodeled and open for business this spring with a new use, name and jobs forthcoming.


The property has a 37,000 sf +- retail building on 7 + acres zoned industrial with numerous outbuildings and is conveniently located on the east side of downtown Silvis adjacent to I-5 and minutes from I-88 and I-80. Pro Build transferred the business to their Davenport, Iowa location some years back and the store remained closed awaiting termination of the lease in 2016.

James Grafton, Silvis’ City Administrator, stated he was pleased to hear the property was sold for retail use for the City of Silvis, Illinois and will welcome further information, all the new jobs and all new business to the community. Grafton is looking forward to working with the new owners to hear more about their use & assist them as necessary.


Corelis remembers having listed the property in the 1970’s as a former Ice House soon ravaged by a terrible fire that reduced the building to rubble, the site cleared and sold for use by Payless Cashway. Silvis continues to grow.
