Adaptive Reuse in Panama City, FL at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Panama City

Building History

Known as the "Balboa Building", due to its location off West 15th Street and Balboa Avenue, this commercial structure was built in 1977 in Panama City within the Florida Panhandle. Panama City is home to the beautiful St. Andrew's Bay, a coastline with blue waters from the Gulf of Mexico. The Balboa Building was formerly used as the call center for the cellular provider AT&T and is now home to U-Haul Moving & Storage of Panama City. Unfortunately, the city faced massive destruction in 2018 from Hurricane Michael, a category five hurricane. The city has since created a robust plan to rebuild with resiliency, innovation, and sustainability in mind. 

U-Haul proudly acquired the site in 2018 for adaptive reuse. 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.
