Adaptive Reuse in Chicago, IL at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Lincoln Park

Building History

You may have heard songs or seen images of the iconic milkmen, who once delivered dairy and milk products directly to your door. Standard Cap & Seal Company was originally based in Chicago Illinois and got their start providing the disk caps and enclosures for the deliverable glass milk bottles. As we know, neighborhood milk deliveries eventually retired when consumers began purchasing their milk directly from the grocery store. Standard Cap and Seal then refocused their brand on providing disposable paper covers that would seal a drinking glass. These products were largely sutiable for the hospitality industry. Standard Cap and Seal would eventually relocate to Georgia and merge with Rixie Paper Products to continue to provide paper products for the hospitality, food-service and advertising markets. The Standard Cap & Seal Company building was built in 1917 and U-Haul acquired the historic property in 2000. 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
