​​​WACO - The Geyser Ice Co. complex has long outlived its heyday, when it supplied ice for trains loaded with meat and vegetables, and when icemen drove their red horse-drawn wagons through Waco’s dusty streets.

The collection of industrial buildings at 927 Webster Ave. dates back to the company’s founding in 1892. Now the plant sits vacant.

But a local investment group hopes to reinvent the plant for a new century.

Rydell Capital bought the 2.4-acre property from Reddy Ice Co., which two years ago vacated its ice distribution business there, consolidating it with a facility in Whitney.

The company has no specific plans for the property but intends to renovate the buildings to suit a mix of commercial tenants.

Rydell general counsel Dillon Meek said the buildings could lend themselves to a range of entrepreneurial uses, such as retail, craft manufacturing, office or athletic uses.
