The grain elevator building of Rotermann Factories
(built in 1904–1930)
The history of Rotermann Quarter dates back to 1829 when Rotermann Factories was established by Christian Abraham Rotermann, which initially was a merchant court dealing primarily with with construction material production, import and export. In time, the business expanded to build a department store, a starch factory, a spirit factory, a pasta factory etc. A brand new flour mill was built in 1890, and the grain elevator building in Hobujaama Street in 1900, which was extended and completed in 1904.
The buildings went through a re-development in 1930s, during which the grain elevator was extensively renovated and re-designed. Rotermann Factories Enterprise ceased trading and was nationalized in 1945. One of the key industries of Rotermann Quarter during the occupation was the bread manufacturing – the production facility Leibur used the Hobujaaama building as a bread factory even until the latter part of the 1980s. The Soviet-era atmosphere of the Rotermann Quarter has been immortalized in the world cultural history as the decaying industrial area became the set for the majority of scenes for ‘Stalker’, a film by Andrei Tarkovsky. Industrial manufacturing stopped in most of Rotermann Quarter buildings by the 1990s.
2006 saw the start of renovation and re-development work in Rotermann Quarter. The area was designated historically valuable by the National Heritage Board in 2011 and therefore the the old industrial buildings that have found a new function should coexist peacefully with high quality contemporary architecture. The grain elevator, which is the Quarters biggest and most spectacular building, has also become a home for Restaurant PULL. Renovation works for at the gain elevator building started in 2015, in order to adjust the building for its new tenants. A fully functional, modern restaurant kitchen was fitted in the former elevator rooms along with high-tech grill devices and ‘Saaremaa Butchery’ butcher’s store. The restaurant seats about 90 people over its two floors, an outside courtyard terrace is open in summer season.
