Adaptive Reuse in Buffalo, NY at U-Haul Moving & Storage at Main St

Building History

The Kings Furniture Company building was built in 1920 and U-Haul acquired the historic building in 1976. 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.
