Adaptive Reuse in Greensboro, NC at U-Haul Storage at Greensboro Coliseum

Building History

In 1920, the population of Greensboro was 19,861. North Carolinians were recovering from The Great War (WWI) as life began its new normal.  This building was constructed in 1920 for G. T. Glascock & Son(s) & Glascock Stove & Mfg. CO of Greensboro, NC. In addition to providing jobs for returning soldiers, this business manufactured and sold coal and wood stoves and heaters, cast iron pots and skillets, for more than sixty years. U-Haul International, Inc, founded by a Navy veteran, is designated as one of the top 100 veteran-friendly companies by The Military Times on its “Best for Vets: Employers 2020” list, achieving this honor for many previous years.  

U-Haul purchased this abandoned building for adaptive reuse and has been serving U-Haul customers since 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, a timeless value for our community.
