B&A Warehouse is an event facility and catering company located at 1531 1st Avenue South, across from Railroad Park. It opened in 1999 in the former Jefferson Plumbing & Mill Supply Company warehouse. Craig Rogers of Designform was the architect for the renovation work.
B & A is named for its owners, Bill Mudd and Art Durkee. Mudd, an attorney with Whitaker, Mudd, Simms, Luke & Wells, currently owns 89% interest in the property through his First Avenue Development LLC while Durkee's heirs own the remaining 11%.
In 2011 the land on which the business sits was proposed as part of the location for a new downtown baseball stadium. Mudd accused city leaders of ignoring his desire to remain at the location and have the building incorporated into the proposed development.
