Adaptive Reuse in Fargo, ND at U-Haul Moving & Storage of 13th Ave

Building History

Sportsman Warehouse is "the great indoors for those who love the great outdoors." They specialize in carrying top-quality, brand-name products for the serious outdoor enthusiast. The retailer currently has stores in 23 states in th U.S including Alaska. The Sportsman Warehouse building was originally built in 2004 and U-Haul acquired the building in 2018. 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.
