Adaptive Reuse in Oshawa, ON at U-Haul Moving & Storage at Taunton Rd

Building History

U-Haul acquired the property in 1979. The building was occupied by Oshawa Paving at the time of the purchase. 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.
