Adaptive Reuse in Oklahoma City, OK at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Bricktown

Building History

This century old building was the most innovative factory in the country for sweets and treats when it opened in 1912. The Iten’s Biscuit Factory was 5 stories tall and cost $250,000 to build, comparable to over $6,000,000 in 2016. The factory was capable of handling all processes in manufacturing and distribution. The top floor housed the furnaces, the 4th floor was responsible for icing, the 2nd and 3rd floors were in charge of packing, and the 1st floor was responsible for shipping. The most innovative feature that many today would view as common place was the inclusion of a breakroom and restroom on every floor. In the 1930’s the building was bought by the National Biscuit Company (NABISCO) and then sold again in the 1950’s to the Folding Carrier Corporation, who manufactured their shopping carts at the factory. The building was then acquired by U-Haul in 1977 and currently provides self storage as well as truck and trailer sharing. 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.
