Star-Telegram: New owners dreaming up big plans for historic O.B. Macaroni Building

Plans are afoot to bring new life to the O.B. Macaroni Building just south of downtown Fort Worth, where pasta was made for more than a century.

The iconic three-story brick building, located at Vickery and the South Freeway in the shadow of the mixmaster, was vacated last year when the macaroni company moved to a new home along Interstate 20 in south Fort Worth. Two silos with the O.B. (Our Best) Macaroni logos still stand out from one of the building additions.
