Adaptive Reuse in Urbana, IL at U-Haul Moving & Storage at Southgate

Building History

In September 1983, Jerry's IGA moved into the 43,000 square foot Urbana building previously occupied by Kroger. Jerry's IGA is a supermarket chain operating 14 other IGA stores in central Illinois and western Indiana. The local chain is owned by a parent company, Kirby Foods. The local market provided essential grocery and pharmacy supplies to the community for about three decades. Unfortunately, this store faced fierce competition when national big box stores moved into the area, and Jerry’s IGA eventually had to close the doors at this location. U-Haul acquired the abandoned building in 2016.

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.
