Adaptive Reuse in Jacksonville, FL at U-Haul Moving & Storage of South Jacksonville

Serving U-Haul customers since 1980, this facility was built through Adaptive Reuse of an abandoned building.

Building History

The King Car-Truck Rentals building was built in 1969 and U-Haul acquired the building in 1980. 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.
