Adaptive Reuse in Fresno, CA at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Mid City

Building History

The Faris Osborne Company building was built in 1935 and U-haul acquired the historical building in 1977. Adaptive reuse building conversions allow U-Haul to promote infill development to meet citizens’ needs while preserving the natural resources and land normally required for new construction. Adaptive reuse also allows resources to be focused on integrating environmentally thoughtful features into the existing building rather than creating waste in the form of demolition and using valuable resources for new construction.

Environmental Impact

Serving U-Haul customers since 1977, this facility was built through adaptive reuse of an abandoned building. Adaptive Reuse promotes infill development in an effort to strengthen communities, with the following benefits achieved at this site:

  • 3 tons of metal manufacturing & transportation prevented
  • 490 tons of new concrete pours avoided
  • 960 tons of construction and demolition debris prevented
