Adaptive Reuse in Saint Paul, MN at U-Haul Moving & Storage of St Paul

Building History

Brown & Bigelow is a promotional products distributor founded in 1896. They sell promotional products through a network of 250 employees located throughout the country and have 18 full service offices. The Brown and Bigelow building was built in 1956 and U-Haul acquired the building in 2013. 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.
