Adaptive Reuse in White Plains, NY at U-Haul Moving & Storage of White Plains

Building History

The New York Plumbers Specialties Co. building was built in 1963 and U-Haul acquired the building in 1978. 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.
